Hi Everybody!

My name is Bernd Gast, I'm from Germany, and I play piano and guitar.

Since I love the Moonlight Sonata I decided to do a rearrangement for guitar.
Now I'm very curious about other piano player's opinion.

I'm looking forward to your comments!
Here it is:

Beautiful! Very well done. To me that looks much more difficult to do on guitar than piano.

Thanks for sharing.

That's a really beautiful arrangement and the recording sounds great. My only suggestion is to bring out that top note a little more than the inner voices to bring out the melody. You did that in parts of the piece but not the whole way through.

Hi, Pianogirl!

You got the point.
Thats what I'm working on - and - it's getting better.
Do you have recordings out too?

Best wishes from Germany
Bernd Gast
