O' CANADA
Canadian National Anthem
Lyrics by the Honourable Robert Stanley Weir
Music composed by Calixa Lavalee
Tabbed by Clint Hamilton 09/07/2007
based on a transcription by Kyle Peters

This is a really basic version of O' Canada with 
very little expression. In the future I may tab 
another with harmonies and more techniques but for now
I need to get this to my players. I plan on recording 
a new national anthem for the opening exercises at the 
high school where I work as a T.A./Music Administrator.
There are plenty of players here and some beautiful singers.
Wish us luck.
Enjoy, and feel free to add some 3rds and 5ths to the 
melody line to thicken it up.
