Paganini Caprice #11

(transcribed by Paul Dearhouse: [email protected]
   feel free to write me with corrections, comments, or suggestions)

This is a slower caprice by Paganini, from his 24 Caprices. It is also
   one of the more beautiful sounding, in my opinion. The tempo is slow,
   and I have only transcribed the first slow section. A second, faster
   section follows this one, which is then followed by the slow section
   again to finish the caprice. I  have included chords below the TAB,
   and comments are on the top.

NOTE: The chords sound best when you "strum" them with your fingers,
         where each note is a little offset from the other. For example,
         the last flourish before the ending could be written as:

hold....
  E-------------------------------------------------------------------|
  B------------------------------------------------------3------------|
  G------5-----5----5-----5----5----5----3----3----2------------------|
  D-----2-----3----5-----7----7----4----5----2----3-----3-------------|
  A----3-----5----7-----8----6----5----5----3----3--------------------|
  E----------------------------------------------------4--------------|
       C     Dm7  C/E   F    F7   D7   Gm   C7   F     G#dim?

...but since it was easier to write the TAB with the chord notes
         right on top of each other, I just did that to save space.
         Well, that was just a tip or suggestion, HAVE FUN!
