Hi everyone,

As subject say, does anyone have the sheet music of fur elise with finger notations? My wife like the song, i tried to learn it before but stopped at the first bridge. Now i wish to finish learning it.

With my current song that i'm learning, the finger notations helps me to learn it significantly faster than without (though as it gets more comfortable i changed some of the fingers to better suit me). So i'm hoping there is one for fur elise as well. I googled but didn't find it.

Thank you for your help.

It's not what you're asking for but still;
Alot of youtube tutorials out there on für elise so you can put the fingering yourself on the sheet music like:

Best way though is coming up with your own fingering, but you have to have a good basis to know what will work best. Anyway.. I think writing the fingering down yourself using youtube will be the best option as far as I know. But mayb someone else has it with the fingering..

Hello,

I have a great experience with Alfred's books.
So if I would like to learn Fur Elise I would choose one of these:

Fur Elise hardly has any points where completely natural fingering won't just work.

There is one element where I didn't naturally play the preferred fingering: For the repeated notes in three octaves, my initial reaction was to play 5-1-2; my teacher suggested (and it's in the pdf just posted) 5-5-1 which does work better.

Thank you everyone for your help.

It's not related to the piece at all. It's just a cute way of writing the Name Gilbert de Benedetti who edited this version.
