Learning Gymnopedie no 1

I’ve decided to learn Gymnopedie no 1 written by Erik Satie on piano.
This song I did try to learn earlier, but forgot about it halfway… then I noticed that the Suzumiya Haruhi movie used the song, so that made me want to learn it again.

Seems much easier now that my note reading has improved. I now don’t have to decipher what the notes are, but I’m not good enough to sightread it with both hands. Mainly working on the left hand chords at the moment since that is the more challenging part for me. I’d like to hear you play it on classical guitar. It would sound nice on it.

Since the key of the piece is in D major, I think I could play the melody part on violin as well to make a nice piano violin arrangement.
