More about this Level 2 "Nobody Knows the Trouble I've Seen":
"Nobody Knows the Trouble I've Seen" is one of the most well-known African American spiritual songs dated back all the way to around the 1860s. It was first published in 1867 in "Slave Songs of the United States." Well-known artists who have done their cover versions of this song are Marian Anderson, Lena Horne, Louis Armstrong, Harry James, Paul Robeson, Sam Cooke, Deep River Boys, and many others. This song also appeared in the play, Negro Spirituals Vol. 1, and the oratorio, A Child of Our Time.
This particular arrangement is for very easy level players (level 2). It is made for piano solo. However, you or someone else can sing along. The separate lyrics page is included in the PDF file. After you download it, please locate the hand position on the tutorial page. The fingering numbers are on all notes on the music score. Unlike Level 1 "Nobody Knows the Trouble I've Seen," you'll be playing the melody notes and harmonic notes. Therefore, it requires a lot more coordination with the right and left hands, and different fingers at this level than the one at Level 1.
