In this video I talk about one way that I make arrangements. For hymns, popular songs, folk songs, I prefer to work from a lead sheet. A lead sheet contains the melody as well as the chords.

MOONLIGHT SONATA (First Movement) Full Tutorial with TAB – Fingerstyle Guitar
This lesson is on the first movement of the Moonlight Sonata by Ludwig van Beethoven. “Moonlight Sonata” refers to Sonata No. 14. The original key is c-sharp minor but for this arrangement, I transposed it to the key of A minor.
This movement is composed in a quasi Sonata form, which I explain in the tutorial. One of my favorite movies is Immortal Beloved, a movie about the life/love life of Beethoven. Probably my favorite scene from the movie is when he lays his head on the piano and plays this movement.
