This arrangement of the Grateful Dead's "Black Muddy River", by World of Harmony Music founder Debbie Center, is so easy to play on your zither or lap harp! Just slide the sheet music under the strings and pluck the strings in the order shown on the sheet music. The melody notes are properly notated and connected by solid lines, like a connect-the-dots drawing. At the end, you can also pluck a three-string chord, notated with dots and a dashed line. Lyrics included on a separate sheet.

This sheet music works with Music Makers, Melody Harps, T.K. O'Brien, and Appalachian Spirit Folk Instruments zithers. To use with a First Act or Hape Happy Harp instrument, you'll need to cut farther inside the cutting guidelines, and you may lose a note or two at the beginning or end. For use with Melody Harps, you'll need to tune both F strings to F sharp. Typical zither tuning, from bottom to top, is G A B C D E F# G A B C D E F# G, but tuning to any two-octave major scale will work with this sheet music.
Print onto letter-sized or A4 paper.
Select "Print Actual Size", and NOT "Scale to Fit".
Under Orientation, select Auto Portrait / Landscape.
Cut along the two cutting guidelines.
When you're sure you have it printing correctly, you may want to print onto more durable card stock.
