Hey guys....question...

  1. Does anyone here happen to know where I can find the bass tabs for Beethoven's "Moonlight Sonata"? I'm using a 4-string, thanks.

    Didn't Bach do that?
     
  3. Nope, it was Beethoven.

    Is classical music ever found tabbed? I kind of figured that it was usually written in standard notation.

    hey wonder, welcome to TB. People here are generally very helpful... but for one reason or another there is a very strong anti-tab mentality going around. whether or not tabs are good or bad or usefull or anything has been argued into the ground, but its a fact that if you ask for anything involving tabs here, you will get mocked, and there won't be much help in getting what you actually asked for.

    Regarding your question, i don't know where you would be able to find it, but if you could find the sheet music it shouldn't be too hard to figure out, espeically if you already know what the song sounds like.

    goodluck, please don't let this ruin your image of TB

    This is exactly what I like about TB - the humour! How boring would this site be if it was all just - question followed by answer!!?

    Most of the answers to the questions asked, could be found by a quick internet search anyway and to me they are just the ultimate in laziness.

    But I always admire people who can use humour to get this point across rather than just saying - do a search dummy! Which is what I would be thinking. ;)

    This particular one brought to mind a spoof quiz show - you know :

    "Who wrote Beethoven's 9th Symphony? Was it :

    a) Bach
    b) Beethoven
    c) Fieldy

    since it is a classical piano piece you will most likely not find it in a bass-only version, neither in standard notation nor in tabs. and although stu hamm played a version of the sonata, it doesn't contain all parts. and of course noone tabbed it out.

    so you'll have to use the piano sheet music.

    To make a very long story very short, the term "DURRL" is an intentional misspelling of the name "Darryl", spelled in such a way as to approximate the colloquial pronunciation of that name which you might find in the inbred hills of the deep south. It's Ed Fuqua's (a.k.a. - BAD FUNGUS, FUQHORN EDHORN, DEAD PUKESPRAY, RED DOUCHESPRAY, et. al...) way of calling me a bucktoothed hillbilly dumbf*** from Kentucky, which has since been adopted by other select TB members who know me fairly well.

    I wear it like a badge of honor. :D

    Although Chris stated his views did not represent all of TalkBass, they however do represent mine. And FiElDys, really, I'm not lying to you. Fieldy doesn't have to practice, he's perfect, he can do that click sound, and beats the heck out of Mozart.


    Yes, I said MoZaRt on purpose. bEeToVaN is really overrated.

    At last I found out what DURRL means. Here in Tennessee, Daryl is pronounced DAYREEL.

    BopLickCity,

    I've been wondering for years what specific location the lyrics of "East of the Sun" were referring to, and now I come to find out that it's been about dear old TENNESSEE all this time.

    I used to hang out a bit in Knoxville when I was younger, and in the summer it always felt like it was located DIRECTLY UNDER the sun. Is my memory faulty, or does it still get hot enough to fry eggs on the sidewalk in your neck of the woods?


    METROPOLITANSCHOOLS,

    Aw, shucks......:oops:
