Ode to Joy - Basic Membership


Ode to Joy by Ludwig Van Beethoven is a hugely well-known piece of music. I remember it most vividly as the music that played during one of the scenes in the first 'Die Hard' movie starring Bruce Willis.

My transcription uses artificial harmonics to open the piece before the melody proper enters.  


  • The original is in the key of D-major but this transcription is in the easier key of C-major
  • If you want to play it in the original key I suggest placing a capo at the 2nd fret
