CHORDS FOR GUITAR
I have had a lot of requests on some way of arranging this full orchestra
transcription for guitar, which is impossible, needless to say. Therefore I
deliberately avoided trying in the first place. On the other hand, the solo
guitar as an advanced chord instrument WILL always be somewhat inadequate and
thus unsatisfactory in this school of harmony. This is the premise, as I see
it, and not an excuse for just not trying. So I will give it a go!

Capo 3rd fret, and I see no way around "Capo 4th fret" at the key change! :D
(I have million chord names left out on purpose to avoid causing a mess here.)
