Subject: TAB: Finlandia-hymn by Jean Sibelius

Here's the Jean Sibelius's Finlandia-hymn adapted to guitar.

I'd use a 250-500 millisecond delay when playing this.

And I'd also keep it quite soft, aka cut some tone's off using the tone pot
and use
middle and neck pickups or just the neck or middle pickup.

* = Fermata, Hold the note ringing here for a short while
~ = Vibrato
. = Staccato, Play very sharply, a pick is handy
rit. = Ritardando, Slow the tempo while playing

                       *                      *         *             ~~~~~~
E-2-0-2-3--2-0-2---0-0-2-|-2-0-2-3--2-0-2---0-2-|-5-5-5-7--2-2-55-00-3-------|
B----------------3-------|----------------3-----|----------------------------|
G------------------------|----------------------|----------------------------|
D------------------------|----------------------|----------------------------|
A------------------------|----------------------|----------------------------|
E------------------------|----------------------|----------------------------|
                   *         *             ~~~~~~  rit.                ~~~~~
E-3-2-0-2------0-2-2-|-5-5-5-7--2-2-55-00-3------|-3-2-0-2-----0-------------|
B----------3-3-------|---------------------------|---------3-3--3-3---3------|
G--------------------|---------------------------|---------------------------|
D--------------------|---------------------------|---------------------------|
A--------------------|---------------------------|---------------------------|
E--------------------|---------------------------|---------------------------|
  .~~~~~ (slide very fast while simult. fading out plus a small echo)
E---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B-3-----/21-----------------------------------------------------------------|
G---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Quick last note: That last slide/fade is quite hard to achieve without
studio technologies, but it sounds very nice when it's done properly.
