Some of my students at school have found a guitar tab for Pelagia's Song (the main theme from Captain Corelli's) but I have yet to find one for my mandolin. Any ideas folks?? I need it for a performance in the summer.

Well, I did a quick import of that song from the guitar tab, into TablEdit, transposing it down one octave. Is that right? I think the high E on a mandolin is one octave above the high E on a guitar.

I have no idea what the timing of the song is, so it sounds really choppy. I've never heard this tune. But the TablEdit version is attached.

OK, I think I did that wrong. I actually have no idea what octave that song should be done in, on the mandolin.

I did correct one mistake in the 2nd measure, a note that was obviously wrong. The text import didn't pick it up. Corrected tab attached.

Hi would love to get the music to that tune ,I did learn to play it just by listening to it. I find that when I can,t find the music to the tune I just listen to it over and over than I can pick it up on my mandolin. http://www.mandolincafe.net/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/coffee.gif

Could provide the standard notation of the song...

The standard notation is part of the files I've posted. In TablEdit, you just have to tell it to display the standard notation. There are a couple of ways to do this--the way I do it, is using "Print Preview". It gives options for display in that dialog box.

Hello, Kelly_guy!

Thanks for the info and I`m sorry, that I didn`t look the files, you`ve posted. I wrote down the standard notation two years ago with my "Capella" note-typing programm. I`ll try to see your version.

Good luck!
