Song: Moonlight Sonata: Adagio Sostenuto
Arrangement credited to: The Nutcrackers
Original composer: Ludwig van Beethoven
Tabbed by: dshodaw
Tuning: Standard

Link to the song, as officially released by Ubisoft on Youtube:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YgGip2JHGqE

This is an easy, though very beautiful composition, based on the first of three parts of Moonlight Sonata.
Once you have it memorized, it's an excellent song to serenade your girl with. There are no lyrics, but the
music speaks for itself. Marcus Miller also has a beautiful arrangement named Moonlight Sonata, based on the
original piece by Beethoven for more advanced players. That's also worth a listen ;) Enjoy!

If you're not as familiar with chords yet and you get confused, here's a little guide for how to switch
between those last few chords and notes:

* Pinky – Keep it on the 6th fret on the D string for the rest of the song(high G#)
* Middle finger – Holds down 4th fret on the A string when needed (C#)
* Pointy finger – Firstly, you need it on the 3rd fret on the A string (C)
  Later, it will switch between the 3rd fret A and the 4th fret E (low G#)
* Ring finger – Use on the 6th fret on the A string when needed (D#)

Practice this a bit without the song playing in the background to get the hang of it.

Enjoy and Rock On \,,/
