Debbie Center, founder of World of Harmony Music, has created this beautiful arrangement of "Bird Song" for zither or lap harp. Simply download the music, print it out, cut just inside the two cutting guidelines, and slide the music under the strings of your zither. Pluck the strings indicated by the sheet music and immediately enjoy successfully playing this piece! The melody notes are properly notated and connected by solid lines, like a connect-the-dots drawing. For added fun, you can also pluck the optional harmony notes and chords, notated with dots and a dashed line. Separate lyrics sheet included in purchase.

Watch Debbie perform this piece here:

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 possibly lose a note 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.

Printing Instructions:
Print onto letter-sized or A4 paper.
Select "Print Actual Size", and NOT "Scale to Fit".
Under Orientation, select Auto Portrait / Landscape.

When you're sure you have it printing correctly, you may want to print onto more durable card stock.
