When the calendar flips to November the first thing we Americans think about is Thanksgiving. To celebrate our beloved holiday, I am posting the classic Thanksgiving song we all know and love, Over The River and Through The Woods.
This is an easy arrangement for piano, vocals and guitar, and your friends who play violin or flute can also look over your shoulder and jam with you at your Thanksgiving Day celebration! Kids love this song, so you might like to teach your children, grandchildren, nieces or nephews the words, to sing along.
(This sheet music will only be posted on my website for a year, so if you are reading this post and the sheet music is no long available at UpperHandsPiano.com, just send me an email at UpperHandsPiano@gmail.com and I will happily send it to you.)
This arrangement of Over The River and Through The Woods came from my Songs of the Seasons, AUTUMN Book which you can click on below, to view on Amazon. There are a lot of great easy-to-intermediate arrangements of holiday songs in the Songs of the Seasons series, especially the WINTER book (also below).
Next month I would also like to post some free holiday sheet music for you. Please leave a comment below and let me know which holiday song you would like me to arrange. There are so many great ones, so I need your votes! It has to have been published before 1923, so I can’t give away songs such as White Christmas, or Hanukkah in Santa Monica 😄. But any of the older classics would be great. What’s your favorite vintage holiday tune?
Stay well and enjoy your playing! 🎹 With love and Music, Gaili
