Misc. Notes This version has been transcribed a whole step higher to sounding pitch and is not the version a performer would normally use. Normally a bassist will read a part in C Major and tune the bass to solo tuning or high solo tuning for accompaniment in D Major or E Major.

The version with orchestra is referred to as an "arrangement" on CD booklets, but since these are undated manuscripts, it is impossible to tell which came first. Tagging is subject to correction if dates are ever found and prove otherwise.
