Halloween Guitar Sheet Music
Monsters Everywhere

Halloween guitar sheet music - and violin sheet music too!  "Monsters Everywhere" is an easy-to-read song for beginners. Both instrumental parts include a "note guide" to help young note readers make sense of the treble clef.  And yes... there is an arrangement with guitar tablature!

I wrote this slow-moving Halloween song several years ago for piano students.  My goal was not just a cute song, but one that would encourage students to be less timid in their reading - hence, the many repeated notes!  The same principle works for guitar and violin.

Beginners aren't usually playing melodies down below middle C, so having such a deep register for this little song makes a nice change, as well as giving them the chance to learn about ledger line notes.  My students and I went to the whiteboard with these violin and guitar Halloween songs and drew the treble staff and the ledger line notes all the way to the lowest note.  Then we compared the notes of "Monsters Everywhere" with the notes we had drawn on the board.

Here is the music for early violin, very similar:

Have my guitar and violin students been overwhelmingly delighted with being forced to read standard notation?  

Hahahahahaha.   No, not exactly.  Nevertheless, their note-reading skills are coming along, and I am just a little more concerned about their skills improving than I am about their comfort level with their instrument.  I am pleased to see the refinement of their musicianship...

And here is the obligatory guitar version with tablature, for those non-readers:
