This song was written by Johann Pachelbel who lived from 1653-1706.
The melody becomes more complex as the song progresses
and then at the end you return to playing it in thirds.

The sixteenth notes will be twice as fast as the eighth notes.

It is written in the key of D Major. You will be playing F# and C#.
If you are using an electronic keyboard, find a 4/4 rhythm.
They suggest a speed of 68, but you will start slower than this.

Observe the fingering between the staves. Where two notes are played at the same time,
the fingering indicated is for the top note.
