Genre: Classical  Style: Classical  Key: A#/Bb  Tuning: Standard Open G (gDGBD)  Difficulty: Expert

Notes: Here is the complete tab for The Arrival of the Queen of Sheba (89 bars). I’ve transcribed it from the orchestral version so I may have got it a bit wrong here and there but it sounds fine to me. It is played in Bb so you have to capo three frets so you can play with the orchestra (which I recommend). This is the simple version in as much as the original has a few low D and Eb notes so I’ve fluffed around this the best I can otherwise you would have to remove the capo which makes it harder to play. Believe it or not, it is not that difficult to play, just long. You don’t have to be Chris Moreton to play it (but check his brilliant guitar version out anyway). Please have a look at my previous Sheba_1 tab which is just the first 16 bars.

I'm sorry but when I click on TABLEDIT it comes up straight away. I know TABLEDIT remembers your last tab but I deleted everything and it still came up so I have no idea why.

You may need to update your Tabledit version to 3.0 etc. and then re-open it...Jack

I'm using Tefview that I installed by the end of January, and it opens every other TablEdit tab I have. I don't do TablEdit for writing tabs, as I like my own, pure graphics oriented system better. Therefore TEFview is more than enough for my needs.

Reinstalled Tefview, and that did it... Tab looks diffcult to play (to me).

I'm sorry about that RB-1. My ability is lower intermediate at best, I also have very short fingers. If you learn the first 16 bars you will find certain patterns developing which recur throughout the whole piece. Of course it is extremely hard to play the whole lot without the tab in front of you.

It's a great tune. Here's part of Sheba played by me, banjo and my friend Marc, mando. It's in the MP3 library under the title Sheba.

Thank you for that. As you can see it has to be played by more than one instrument as you have done. That's why I marked the sections with the oboe. I haven't included the backing which would suit a guitar. It was all I could do to work that lot out. I'm still finding the odd mistake.
