Text of Happy Birthday to You - Amazon S3 .Happy Birthday to You words and music by Mildred J. Hill and...

  • Happy Bir thdayto You

    words and music by Mildred J. Hill and Patty S. Hill

    arranged for harp by Sylvia Woods

  • Dotted Rhythm - I have written the notes for thelyric word Hap-py as two eighth notes.

    However, it is often sung in a dotted

    rhythm, as shown here. You may play it

    either way, but be consistent every time

    Hap-py comes in throughout the piece.

    Introduction - You may omit the introductionand start where the lyrics begin.

    And many more Ending - The final andmany more phrase is also optional.

    In the intermediate versions you may play the final

    more chord as written, or you may tremolo thechord. To tremolo, play the final chord rapidly over

    and over again, breaking the chords as fast as

    you can from bottom to top.

    Duet - The easy versionmay be played with the

    early intermediate version

    as a duet.

    Key of G ArrangementsYou need to have sharping levers on the F strings

    to play these arrangements.

    Page 2 Easy version key of G

    Range: 18 strings from C up to F, with no lever

    changes in the music. If this version is too difficult,

    beginners can just play the right hand melody.

    Page 3 Early intermediate version key of G

    Range: 21 strings from G up to F, with no lever

    changes in the music.

    Page 4 Intermediate solo version key of G

    This version only works if people are not singing

    along, which is why I list it as a solo version.

    Range: 32 strings from D up to G, with an F lever

    change for the final note.

    Key of C ArrangementsYou need one B-flat for the final note of these

    arrangements. If your lever harp isnt tuned to

    flats, you have three options.

    #1. Leave out the and many more phrase.

    #2. If people are singing along, you can leave

    the B-flat out of the chord, because the singers

    will be singing that note.

    #3. If you have a sharping lever on your A string,

    you can play an A-sharp instead of the B-flat. Omit

    the left hand notes on and many more so yourleft hand is free to flip the "A" lever immediately

    before the last note.

    Page 6 Easy version key of C

    Range: 18 strings from F up to B-flat, with no lever

    changes in the music. If this version is too difficult,

    beginners can just play the right hand melody.

    Page 7 Early intermediate version key of C

    Range: 21 strings, from C up to B-flat. There are

    no sharping lever changes within the music.

    Page 8 Intermediate solo version key of C

    This version only works if people are not singing

    along, which is why I list it as a solo version.

    Range: 33 strings from C up to G, with a B-flat

    lever change for the final note. If your harp has 3

    full octaves above middle C, you may play the C

    arpeggios in measures 9 and 17 up an octave if

    you wish.

    Lever harp players: Set your sharping levers for the key signature. There is one F-natural lever or pedal change for the final note.

    Because of the extra measures for the arpeggios, this arrangement will not work well if people are singing along.

    You may play the final chord as written, or you may tremolo the chord. This means that youd play the final chord extremely rapidly over and over again,

    breaking the chords as fast as you can from bottom to top.
