Ariane, you play with remarkable clarity, and I love some of those chords you've chosen.  Nice job!  I hope you and yours are healthy and safe during these trying times.

Tabs can be downloaded from my website:…/moun…/ode-an-die-freude/

Musicians all over Germany (and perhaps also elsewhere) have been invited to play last Sunday at 6 pm "Ode an die Freude" on the terrace,balcony or window as a sign of solidarity in the corona crisis.

Since this will be repeated next Sunday I have written an arrangement for mountain dulcimer in case you would like to join in and do not have tabs yet.
(I have notated an easy part in finger drone style as well as one in finger picking style with chords.)

Music can help a little during these difficult times...
