Grande Sonata Pathetique

*******************************************************************************

Grande Sonata Pathetique Op 13 - Adagio cantabile - Ludwig van Beethoven
Piano Sonata No 8 in Cm, 2nd movement

Ever since I learned to play Beethoven's "Pathetique" sonata (op.13) 
on the piano, I have wanted to arrange it for the guitar. 
I found an arrangement by a Mr. David Atkinson which I thought to be 
rather good. Upon closer examination, I found a few parts to be either 
unplayable, or voiced improperly. It is quite difficult to condense an 
intermediate piano piece into something even quasi-playable on the 
guitar, so I give Mr. Atkinson a lot of credit for taking on this task. 
All that I have done here is edit David Atkinson's original arrangement. 
Most of the A-section has not been touched, but I seriously over-hauled 
the two contrasting B and C-sections. Enjoy!
