     Julia - Original Composition by Nobuo Eumatsu(www.nobuouematsu.com)
           Transcribed and Arranged for guitar by Spencer Nunamaker

Standard Tuning
*=Natural Harmonic

This piece is in 4/4 time, in the key of E major. play it at about 90 bpm, 
with a very feel. This is perhaps the most challenging aspect of the piece, 
as it was written for and the fingerings are quite difficult.

Thanks mate, just thought i'd mention this is "fingerpicked". As for the left hand, the goal is a very smooth, non-choppy feel. try not to let there be any space between the shifts.

That first comment was by me. My fingers are used to fingerings like these now. But now it's the tempo that I should worry about
