Author/Artist: Karl Jenkins (born 1944)
Title: Palladio - I Allegretto
Album: Palladio

Most people recognize this as the DeBeers diamond commercial (with the shadows
putting the rings on) from the 90's.  It's a pretty difficult song on guitar,
but it's fun and there's a lot of repetition.

I only changed a few things from the orchestral version:
 - left out notes that were impossible to get to, (still sounds good, though);
   the first eight measures are a good example.
 - when the climax begins in measure 29, I left the repeating sixteenth notes
   as eighth notes because it was entirely too fast to play.
   If you want to try it, just play every note twice (except the bass notes)
   for measures 29, 30, and 31.

Performance note:
   I play this legato, letting all the notes ring, although the original has
more of a marchy, staccato feel.  Legato is easier to play and it gives the
song a more haunting mood coming from a guitar.
