  1. I can’t find a “contact spot” so I guess this is it. I am looking for a piece written by Paganini. I believe its called “Sonatina .” It starts with a eighth note c on the eighth fret followed by a C major chord on the same fret then G on the third fret followed by a G major chord then an e followed by another C major chord in the first position. All the single notes are on the first string. It’s all on one page without repeats. It’s a lively piece but one of his nicer ones. Do you think you could put me on to it, please.
