Tips

I first heard this song played by the cellist yoyoma many moons ago.
Preulde in D is full of arpeggios and scale runs.


Technique
42 unique bars. Turn down. In the ket of D.
Adapted from Suite No.1 Cello in the key of G.

To make it easier to play, i tried to maximise open strings and the use
hammer on pull offs. Loads of slurs (hammer ons and pull offs).
Feel free to change. Also I urge you

to find your own right hand fingering. This song may take you a
while to get used to try and break it up into sections-put your
own favor to it-and piece them back together.

Bar[1]-[22] Arpeggios Chords after Chords
Bar[22] Flattern Previous Chord to a Barre Chord (5th fret)
Bar[24]-[30] Scales running up and down the fretboard. Have fun!
Bar[31]-[37] Pay attention at right hand fingering.(pi-pi-pi)
it is Not uniform. you have to change to (pi,m) when playing
the bass note A.
Bar[39]-[42] last 3 bars so finish strong. Hold Barre chord for
double bass note suspension during the arpeggios! Last bar.
Strum D chord downwards with thumb.

Tips
Scales running up and down the fretboard. Bass Note must be
held in every Bar. Use the Bass note as a metronone to keep in tempo.
