Hi PW members and other piano enthusiasts. Does anybody have or know about a good playable version of Stephen's Fosters Beautiful Dreamer?

The original composition is in Eb major, but I'd prefer it in C. Taylored for beginner to intermediate. If it's in the original Eb, and it's not too complicated, I'd like that as well, I can always transpose.

Thanks for reading and twice as many thanks if you have what I'm asking for.

PS If you'd rather PM me your BD sheet/MIDI than post it here, feel free to do so, makes no difference to me which route it goes.

Yes, the first one does get a bit tricky but the second one looks manageable if you take it slowly to begin with - forget the fluff at the beginning and start with the familiar melody (LH) at 'moderato'.

Also, as you hinted you might do, transposing into C prior to trying to play it could be a profitable exercise in itself.

good luck!

My strategy now consists of playing the melody (top notes combined with chords or chordal notes) according to the easier PDF-file and Wikifonia. Then I'll transcribe the corresponding chords, mostly as arpeggios in the bass. Some parts of the song need to be a pure waltz rhythm, DA, da, da - Da,da, da... Thanks for your help.
