Easy trumpet - Happy Widow (Merry Widow Waltz)

The Merry Widow is an operetta by the Austro-Hungarian composer Franz Lehár. The librettists, Viktor Léon and Leo Stein, based the story – concerning a rich widow, and her countrymen's attempt to keep her money in the principality by finding her the right husband – on an 1861 comedy play, L'attaché d'ambassade (The Embassy Attaché) by Henri Meilhac. (Wikipedia). Printable score for trumpet Bb.

Jingle Bells - Guitar tab

"Jingle Bells" is one of the best-known and commonly sung American songs in the world. It was written by James Lord Pierpont (1822–1893) and published under the title "One Horse Open Sleigh" in the autumn of 1857. It has been claimed that it was originally written to be sung by a Sunday school choir; however, historians dispute this, stating that it was much too "racy" (and secular) to be sung by a children's church choir in the days it was written. (Wikipedia) This is a guitar tablature version with the melody written with chord symbols in G-major.

Donna Donna - Ukulele tab

Donna Donna became especially popular after being recorded by Joan Baez in 1960 in her self-titled album Joan Baez. In her version, the song is retitled "Donna, Donna" (doubling the n"). This became very popular and later versions also used the double "n". The song became a staple of Baez and used in the human rights protest movement in the 1960s." (Wikipedia)

Spanish Romance - Tablature for guitar

This solo for guitar is a very popular and well known piece among classical guitarists. The piece is also called Romance de Amor, Romance d'amour and other names. It became famous as the soundtrack of the film Jeux interdits (Forbidden Games). It was played by the spanish guitarist Narciso Yepes (1927 — 1997). There are different arrangements of the piece online. I have arranged the tune with guitar tablature below the notes.

Canon In D - Easy sheet music for piano

The German Baroque composer Johann Pachelbel composed this piece Canon and Gigue for 3 violins and basso continuo often referred to as Canon in D. Since the 1980s it has frequently been used in wedding ceremonies and is a very popular search online. I have arranged this piece in the key of F but have kept the name Canon in D which is nowadays the title of the piece. You can download the notes by clicking the link above!

This Old Man - Ukulele tab

This is an English language children's song, counting and nursery rhyme with an obscure origin.

This version is arranged with the melody written with ukulele tablature notation below the notes. I have also made a video with the score along with an audio file. You can watch it here!
