Ode to Joy - Melody

  • Melody
  • Key   D
  • Tempo   130 bpm
  • Tuning   GDAE
This arrangement is based on Beethoven's classic melody. Most of the arrangement is played with quarter notes, with an eighth note here and there. The end is the most challenging part as there is a few measures featuring consecutive eighth notes. Check out the licks for some fireworks, but beware! Consecutive eighth notes come twice as fast as quarter notes, and consecutive sixteenth notes come twice as fast as that! You may have to adjust the speed of the overall arrangement when incorporating some tougher licks. You can also use the difficulty and vary sliders on individual measures and lock them in once you get them to your liking. Remember to use the focus feature to practice tough spots and licks. Put in some serious reps over the course of a week or two on the same licks to work on building your speed!
