0=== means let the note ring


Finger # with a dash after it [1 - -] means continue to use same finger.

Time sig is 2/4


All treble notes are 16ths except notes with a dot are 8th notes.
Bass notes are halfs & quarters.
The count is - 1 e & a 2 e & a.

Each section has a 1st bar pickup!


Count;... 1 e & a 2 e da da. The "da da" are the first 2 notes
of the pickup (&-a).

If you like you can play 1 thru 17 twice before going to section two.
The format would be -
Section One twice.
Section Two.
Section One.
Section Three.

This is a great encore piece.


Have fun!

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>SECTION TWO Minor<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

If you maintain the tempo this section will sound like half the speed of
section one. Bar 18 is a pickup which completes the count of bar 17.

This symbol &-a with the dash between means these 2 notes are 16ths.
All other notes are 8ths.

When I play this section I imagine a burglar sneakin' around the house! :-)
