Guitar Tablature: “Wolfgang’s Whistle”

By Mark Phillips, Jon Chappell

“Wolfgang’s Whistle” was adapted from a Mozart piano sonata. Learning to play “Wolfgang’s Whistle” on guitar gives you a great chance for practicing minor arpeggios; it contains major arpeggios, too. Actual pieces of music often mix minor and major, so this is a chance to hear how the two qualities interact.

As you can see in the following music, “Wolfgang’s Whistle” uses minor arpeggio patterns #1 through #4. The rests after each five-note ascent allow you to shift positions easily so you can set up for the next pattern.
