Having discovered my new technique of translating a tablature into letter-music,
I used the technique on that copy of O Canada I bought.
While it is true that the chords on the sheet music were in fact not O Canada,
the tablature, on the other hand, is very much O Canada.
I was NOT ripped off after all. yay!!! I apologize for my previous assessment of the sheet music.
I'm going to have to wait for my electric guitar strings to come though::::
The style of the way I would play the song requires a special guitar body that allows me to reach high F-sharp and high G on the D-string -----
So my Dreadnought-bodied acoustic guitar isn't going to work for this.
I have to wait for my electric strings.
And maybe someday way down the line, I can buy one of those special acoustic guitars that allows the hand to easily reach the high notes.
I APOLOGIZE for commenting solely on the chords on the sheet music without having tried the tablature yet to find out that it was actually good sheet music. Sorry.
Yeah, my O Canada sheet music turned out to have good value after all.
I would like to note, that maybe the Chords are meant to be played with a Capo ---- but the sheet music does not say where to put it.
I managed to get past the part where high-F Sharp is played ----- but shortly after that part the music starts sounding in a way that makes me think ????
Maybe I just translated it into Letter-music wrong.
Maybe O Canada just gets a little bit dull during the middle -------
But after a certain point in the music I've got here, it sounds more like mush than O Canada.
I'm not sure exactly what it is or if I've made a mistake or something. Hmmmmm.
No idea, I might have to ask someone else's opinion.
But, the good news is, I can now play the first part of O Canada. Woohoo.
