Now this last arrangement is JUST THE SAME in the treble clef, but the bass clef chords (also just the same) are split into what I call "bottom, top, bottom, top" chords for my students.

This is the most fun way to play "O Susannah"!

Now here's something different - a guitar duet arrangement of O Susannah that has NO GUITAR TABS, but instead has a helper sheet to figure out (or remind students of) the standard treble clef notation:
