A student of mine composed this. I think it’s hilarious! He was telling me about a spider adventure – obviously the spider met with an unfortunate end, but it was a great excuse to compose a song!
It’s probably a first grade easy song – with a D minor 5 note pattern on the last line, along with the B flat scattered through. But there’s a surprise with a scritchy scratchy bow – we found it best to slide your bow up the fingerboard, which creates a bit of a horrible sound…kind of like a spider dying via spider spray!
Here’s a cute little simplified version of an already cute song.
I included little hands to show when their hands have to move to a new position on the piano, and fingering helps. The original is in C Major – so this is just easier on little eyes.
Stand for the Right simplified
I believe this is #246 in the SDA Hymnal. I have simplified into D major with some helpful fingering.

This is #120 in the SDA Hymnal. It’s a catchy little tune. This simplified arrangement is in G major.
