Tips for playing Level 1 "Danny Boy"
This particular arrangement of "Danny Boy" is at a beginner's level (Level 1). The fingering numbers are provided on all notes on the music score. Please refer to the hand-position tutorial page to find out hand positions after you download it. You'll have 2 different hand positions for the entire song. There are 2 black keys, one on F sharp (#) with the right hand and one on another F sharp (#) with the left hand. Since this is at Level 1, you will be playing only a single melody line without any other notes that create harmonies. If you would like to try one with harmonies but not too difficult, you may want to try, Level 2 "Danny Boy."
This Level 1 "Danny Boy" is arranged for piano solo. However, you or someone else can sing along. The separate lyrics page is included in the PDF file.
