Helen Lyr Req: Will the Angels Play Their Harps for Me?2 (33) RE: Lyr Req: Will the Angels Play Their Harps for Me?2 10 Oct 19

Hi Vanessa,

You can get the sheet music with a bit of mucking about.

I went to the previous thread on this topic and scrolled down to the post by

Copy the ABC notation shown here. Make sure you copy all of the lines:

T:Will the angels play their harps for me?

Go to this link:

Mandolin tab converter

Paste the ABC lines into the box and click submit.

The sheet music will show up and below that are some links. Right click the link for the pdf file and you should have the sheet music file.

One problem though. The music notation shows 4 sharps but then all the C, G, D notes (there are no F notes) have the natural sign so ignore the sharps and ignore the naturals and just play it in the key of C Major. It's a fairly simple tune by the look of it so hopefully you can wing it -pun intended :-) .

Otherwise someone else with more ABC knowledge than me might be able to correct the ABC notation.

I hope I am in time for your funeral music practice.
