Fur Elise is one of the most famous and easily recognized classical music masterpieces of all time by legendary composer Ludwig van Beethoven.
The arrangement we present here is a fairly simple melody intended for Cigar Box Guitars tuned to open G (GDG), accented by an open chord at the beginning of each section.
It will require a little movement around the neck, with one or two finger stretches that will take a little practicing, but the end result is definitely worth the work!
As a 1-5-1 tuning, this can be adapted to any open-style tuning as well, giving it added versatility.
