Hello there! I'm back again with another classical arrangement for ya!
This time it's Paganini's caprice no.9 which obviously influenced famous shredders such as Yngwie and 
Becker. Notice the fingerstyle arrangement in the middle.  So long!

Well you got the "theme" correct, but I have the 24 Caprices music for Violin music on my lap, and the beginning does not have the double stops like how it should, but you have the top part of that tabbed instead. If this is 100% ear transcribed, then you did a damn good job, but you are just missing the bottom double stop part.
