I'll Fly Away
Free Fiddle Sheet Music 

I'll Fly Away free fiddle sheet music, with a new AlphaNotes arrangement for beginning readers.  Also, solos & harmonies for voice and guitar, and lead sheets for other instruments as well!

This gospel song is a well-loved, energetic old hymn for voice, fiddle and guitar. Choose from several versions to download, in multiple keys.



I'll Fly Away is easy even for young fiddlers to play, and the harmony is fairly predictable, but well-matched to the melody (and charming, if I say so myself). Two fiddles playing this as a duet sound great together, and one of my younger vocal students learned the harmony without much of a struggle.

Using lettered notes like this could be called CHEATING, I suppose.  What helps my new learners is really the finger numbers.  At this stage, they are still mostly learning by ear.  This just helps out.

Here is "I'll Fly Away" with free guitar acoustic tablature:

This joyful hymn is actually about death, and what happens afterward. No more shadows, but the bright gladness of looking forward to meeting again friends and family at that home on God's celestial shore... with its promise of hope and everlasting joy, it is a hymn suitable for a funeral.

I'll Fly Away was the favorite hymn of my young friend Gabrielle, and at her memorial service, friends and family sang this song. Here is a harmonized version:
