MADISON, WI and VAN NUYS, CA - August 27, 2009 - Alfred Music Publishing and Musicnotes.com have partnered to offer music lovers everywhere a free Guitar Guru Session and guitar tab download of "Over the Rainbow" to honor Les Paul's memory.

Now through midnight on September 2, 2009, visitors to Musicnotes.com can download a free, interactive Guitar Lesson (including matching guitar tab) for "Over the Rainbow." This particular arrangement was arranged by Grammy award-winning artist Aaron Stang, from Alfred Music Publishing to match the performance recorded by Les Paul and Chet Atkins and featured on the album, 'Masters of the Guitar - Together.'

"Les Paul closed every show at the legendary jazz club Iridium in New York City with an instrumental version of this song," said Tim Reiland, Chairman of Musicnotes.com. "This song has a very emotional meaning for musicians everywhere."

In lieu of payment, Musicnotes and Alfred Music Publishing encourage users who choose to download the song to send donations to the Les Paul Foundation, 236 W. 30th St., Seventh Floor, New York, N.Y. 10001.
