    I just discovered this website, and your arrangement of “Smile.”

    I’ll try to print it out, and I’d like to have a go at playing it.

    Many thanks for going to the trouble of doing it all – making the arrangement and describing how you went about it.

    Kind regards,

    love your arrangement of s”mile”. It is wonderful
    Was it tabbed as a “tef” file or “guitar pro”.
    I would love to get it and add it to my tef pro app on my ipad.
    It will help me to play it better
    Hope you are willing to share it if you can
