There are 4 different arrangements of Oh! Susanna, as follows (click on the links to see the other arrangements):
- Melody -- This is just a very basic melody line for the song that we will use to make the other arrangements.
- Level 1 -- The first level just adds the basic “bum ditty” to the melody.
- Level 2
-- The second level builds on the Level 1 arrangement by adding some hammer-ons, pull-offs, and slides (slurred notes).
- Level 3
-- The Level 3 arrangement adds some drop thumb where appropriate as well as more slurred notes.
