"The Piano" Theme by Michael Nyman

Updated by Ryan Hoover (rhoover@umich.edu)

This seems to be a much more "playable" version of this song on guitar, for me
at least. I added a couple of extra bass notes, just to give it a little more
"oomph" since this obviously isn't a piano. Listen to the real song to get the
timing, of course.
