Ode to Joy comes from the last movement of Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony. You hear the melody throughout the movement. It first begins in the strings before moving to the vocalists before reaching a triumphant climax with the full choir and orchestra. Many people feel that this represents the apex of western classical music. It’s a great piece of music for sure.
For this arrangement I tried to make it as easy as possible. It is basically an arrangement of the melody with chords.
