from The Sound Of Music

Composers: Richard Rodgers (music) and Oscar Hammerstein II (lyrics)

Music: Key of C Major in 3/4 time at a moderate tempo - moderato

Chords: C, G7, F, Fm, Am7, Dm7, G, Gm6, G9

Easier: Christopher Plummer sings in the key of B Major so placing a capo on 2 and playing in the key of A Major will pitch the song up to B Major. F#m7, Bm7, Em6 and E9 in the open positions are very easy to play... charts below.
