    as far as I know, the final movement of Beethoven's 9th symphony is his only work with orchestra and chorus.

    But before I read chorus and was just looking at the lalala's I was thinking opening movement of Beethoven's 5th symphony...

    If it's Mozart it's going to be a lot more difficult because he wrote about 10 times more music then Beethoven.

    A very..interesting, thread.

    I sort of had an idea what it was but I didn't quite get the TING TING bit.

    Maybe you have any more information you can post?
    I'll disagree with you for the sake of being contraversial.

    Yeah it's those damn TING TINGs that prevented me from answerinf Beethoven's Fifth too. I think everyone thought about that piece with the LALALALA's. I could swear just saw my cat laughing like hell.

    If my ears are hearing this correctly it's:-

    *Drum Roll*............................................. ....


    Johann Strauss ~ The Blue Danube Waltz.

    OK, it's not the Strauss piece!!
    I think I recognise it from your TAB but can't think of the name of the piece or the Composer BUT I know I have a full transcription of it somewhere!!!


    *For our English readers* I think it was the piece used in those 'Old Spice' adverts all those years ago!!!
    Russ?? Ash?? Daz?? Steve??
    C'mon, we all must've overdone it with the Old Spice at one time or another!!

    I'll keep looking for it as well!

    If my second guess at the 'Old Spice' music is correct then myself and The Russmeister have concluded that the piece in question is:-
    "Carmina Burana" by Carl Orff.


    PS. Some time ago it was transcribed in 'Guitar Techniques' magazine. I have that issue somewhere I'll see if I can dig it out and let you know which issue it was!!

    Edit:- Go here and find MIDI files of the whole thing!!!!
