Russian Sailor’s Dance (Glière) | Easy Guitar Sheet Music (PDF)

Russian Sailor’s Dance is a Russian folk song more commonly called Yablochko in its native language. The word Yablochko literally means “little apple” and it is of chastushka song and dance. The song became well-known when its choreographed version appeared in the 1927 Reinhold Glière’s ballet production “The Red Poppy”. The English version of the song’s title was developed when it caught on in the West. Although the title has the word apple in it, the song itself has nothing to do with it. Instead, the verses of the song referred to the political issues that were rampant at the time.

The Red Poppy or sometimes referred to as The Red Flower, of which Russian Sailor’s Dance was part of, is a ballet in three acts and eight tableaux with an apotheosis. It was the first Soviet ballet with a modern revolutionary theme. The musical was about Russian sailors, particularly its captain, who rescued overworked Coolies from its harbormaster. A certain woman witnessed this act of kindness and gave the captain a red poppy as a symbol of her love, thus its title. It was also because of this musical that Glière became a recognized composer. Due to the song’s popularity, several Soviet dance troupes include it in their repertoire.

This digital print sheet music edition of Russian Sailor’s Dance is arranged for the advancing music student with at least two years of lessons. It’s a two-page arrangement that features traditional notation and tablature, and there’s an mp3 file on the site that students can listen to as they practice.

Minuet in G by Bach | Free Easy Guitar Solo (Notation/TAB)

The Minuet in G is attributed to Johann Sebastian Bach, a German composer and musician of the Baroque Period — a period or style of Western Art Music composed from approximately 1600-1750.

Johann Sebastian Bach was born in 1685 in Eisenech, Thuringia, Germany. His father, Johann Ambrosius Bach, was the director of the town musicians, and all of his uncles were professional musicians. His father probably taught him to play the violin and harpsichord, and his brother Johan Cristoph Bach taught him the clavichord and exposed him to a considerable amount of contemporary music. Johann Sebastian Bach is known for instrumental compositions such as the Brandenburg Concertos and the Goldberg Variations as well as for vocal music such as the St. Matthew Passion and the Mass in B minor.

Maple Leaf Rag | Easy Guitar Sheet Music (TAB & Notation)

Maple Leaf Rag earned Scott Joplin the title, “King of Ragtime.” The piece was so remarkable, in fact, that it became the model for ragtime compositions in the years following. Joplin rose to popularity due to the success of this piece and profited greatly from it. It has become one of his most popular works of all time recorded by several well-known artists.

The song’s roots can be traced back to Sedalia, Missouri where Joplin arrived as a touring musician in 1894 and stayed at the residence of Arthur Marshall who would later become a ragtime composer in his own right. He performed in major clubs and dance halls in Sedalia and performed Maple Leaf Rag in one of those performances. Among the many clubs that Joplin performed in was Maple Leaf Club and many speculated that the title of the piece was named after it. What made the song remarkable is the fact that the entirety of the song is played by only one person in the piano. One has to have very good left-hand coordination to perform the piece and the complexity of it was delivered exquisitely by Joplin with careful coordination.

The publication of Maple Leaf Rag is yet to be known but it was speculated that the published date was between August 10 and September 20, 1899, when the United States Copyright Office received a copy of the song. It was also at August 10,1899 that Joplin made a deal with John Stillwell Stark that earned him $0.01 royalty on all sales of the piece, with the minimum sales price of $0.25.

Jack Be Nimble | Free Mother Goose Beginner Guitar Sheet Music (TAB)

An English nursery rhyme by Mother Goose, Jack Be Nimble has been around since the mid-nineteenth century where the rhyme was first collected in a manuscript and then recorded by James Orchard Halliwell in his English Nursery Rhymes and Fairy Tales collection.

The song talks about Jack jumping over a candlestick. Due to the brevity of the lyrics, the rhyme cannot be furthered analyzed. However, there are at least three theories that explain its origin but the most likely explanation of the rhyme is the tradition of candle jumping as a way of divining the future.

The practice is said to be a sport and a form of fortune telling. Since the 1600s, jumping over candlesticks or “Candle-leaping” as they call it was quite popular at markets and fairs in England particularly in Buckinghamshire. It was believed that jumping over a lit candlestick without extinguishing the flame would bring good luck.

The song and some variations of it have been featured in various songs including Snoop Dogg’s “My Medicine” and Chubby Checker’s “Limbo Rock.”

Baa Baa, Black Sheep | Beginner Guitar Sheet Music (TAB & Notation)

Baa Baa Black Sheep, one of the most popular English nursery rhyme with pop culture and literature using it as a metaphor and allusion, is a nursery rhyme written in a trochaic meter to make it easy for younger children to master. It was first printed in Tommy Thumb’s Pretty Song Book and was published in 1744. Its next surviving printing was published in 1765 in Mother Goose’s Melody with a little revision made to the last line, which was written as, “But none for the little boy who cries in the lane.”

Several theories have been presented regarding the meaning behind Baa Baa Black Sheep. Among these theories was the one suggested by Katherine Elwes Thomas, which states that the song is a complaint against taxes levied on the Medieval English wool trade. Another theory suggests that it is about the slave trade in the southern United States. With no historical evidence presented that supports claims over political correctness, a book titled Understanding Children’s Play suggests an explanation behind the lyrics stating that the wool of the black sheep may have been prized more as it could be made into dark cloth without the use of dyes.

Lyrics for ‘Oh How I Love Jesus’

There is a name I love to hear,
I love to speak its worth;
It sounds like music in mine ear,
The sweetest name on earth.

Refrain:
O how I love Jesus,
O how I love Jesus,
O how I love Jesus,
Because He first loved me!

It tells me of a Savior’s love,
Who died to set me free;
It tells me of His precious blood,
The sinner’s perfect plea.

[Refrain]

It tells me of a Father’s smile
Beaming upon His child;
It cheers me through this little while,
Through desert, waste, and wild.

[Refrain]

It tells me what my Father hath
In store for every day,
And though I tread a darksome path,
Yields sunshine all the way.

[Refrain]

It tells of One whose loving heart
Can feel my deepest woe;
Who in my sorrow bears a part,
That none can bear below.

[Refrain]

It bids my trembling heart rejoice;
It dries each rising tear;
It tells me, in a still small voice,
To trust and never fear.

[Refrain]

Jesus, the name I love so well,
The name I love to hear!
No saint on earth its worth can tell,
No heart conceive how dear.

[Refrain]

This name shall shed its fragrance still
Along this thorny road,
Shall sweetly smooth the rugged hill
That leads me up to God.

[Refrain]

And there, with all the blood-bought throng,
From sin and sorrow free,
I’ll sing the new eternal song
Of Jesus’ love to me.

[Refrain]

Looking for a great piece for your beginning guitar player to enjoy practicing? Take Me Out to the Ball Game has been a favorite with kids for more than 100 years!

About ‘Take Me Out to the Ball Game’

Take Me Out to the Ball Game is a 1908 Tin Pan Alley song by Jack Norworth and Albert Von Tilzer which has become the unofficial anthem of North American baseball, although neither of its authors had attended a game prior to writing the song.[1] The song’s chorus is traditionally sung during the middle of the seventh inning of a baseball game. Fans are generally encouraged to sing along, and at some ballparks, the words “home team” are replaced with the team name. Read more on Wikipedia.
