Tips for playing Level 1 "Oh! Susanna":
On this page, we are offering Level 1 (beginner's level) "Oh! Susanna." In this arrangement, you can stay in one hand-position for the entire song. After you download it, please find a hand position on the tutorial page. There are fingering numbers provided on every note on the music score. You'll be playing only melody notes for this level without any other additional harmonic notes. There is no black key that you need to use. Also, on this level of "Oh! Susanna," your left hand will use only the thumb. The left-hand finger 2, 3, 4 and 5 are not going to be used. However, to create a good habit, placing all 5 fingers of the left hand is recommended throughout the song. If you would like to try something more challenging, please try Level 2 of "Oh! Susanna" which requires coordinating the melody notes and harmonic notes. Level 1 "Oh! Susanna" is arranged for piano solo. However, you or someone else can sing along. The separate lyrics page is included in the PDF file.
