Guitar setting for Handel’s Messiah Overture (the Grave)

Our Parish does a Christmas Catechization each year centered around different parts of the Small Catechism. This year the music surrounding the questioning consists of selections from Handel’s Messiah. I like to play for some of the hymns during the catechization each year. I couldn’t find a guitar setting for the parts of the Messiah that we are using this year, so I transcribed the first part of the Overture (the Grave). The transcription includes tablature for those who find that system easier. I hope someone else can also find it useful.
