Fur Elise complete

Listen and watch the brief tutorial below on YouTube

From Wikipedia, we learn:
Bagatelle No. 25 in A minor for solo piano, commonly known as “Für Elise” or “Fuer Elise” (German: [fyːʁ eːˈliːzə], English: “For Elise”, commonly written without German diacritical marks as “Fur Elise”), is one of Ludwig van Beethoven’s most popular compositions. It is usually classified as a bagatelle, but it is also sometimes referred to as an Albumblatt.
The score was not published until 1867, 40 years after the composer’s death in 1827. The discoverer of the piece, Ludwig Nohl, affirmed that the original autographed manuscript, now lost, was dated 27 April 1810.[4]

It’s become very clear to me that Chord/Melody format is the way to go for making solo ukulele pieces truly accessible to more people. I did a fingerpicking arrangement of FUR ELISE some time ago, but in the process of compiling this new collection, I wondered if perhaps a new fresh look at the piece might be a good idea. So, sitting down with ukulele in hand I began to approach FUR ELISE in a chord melody style and discovered to my delight that it worked very very well. It still retained the elegant melody as well as the flowing aspect of the phrasing of this piece.
Here is a little snippet off the piece so you can see how it’s laid out in Tablature format.

FUR ELISE is included in the new “CHORD/MELODY eBook THREE” which is available for $24.95.
