****************************************************************************** Comments according to posts on the newsgroup rec.music.classical.guitar John Williams did a double-take recording, so there is probably no definitively correct solo version in tab or in sheet - "Although it won't always be technically possible to hold on to the melody as written, it has been put down like it is in order to convey the feeling of legato to be aimed at" (from the sheet) eg measure 5 - the broken chord - the sheet has B,A,E,A,E,A - the record has B,A,C#,E,C#,A (which is playable?) -
