Free Sheet Music for Piano – Southern Gospel, Folk Music, Country Style

Count Your Blessings Southern Gospel Hymn on PianoOver time, many very nice people have asked for sheet music to my songs.  Since my playing is all by ear, it didn’t seem very likely.  Until I found some free software called Midi Sheet Music.  Midi is the native format my Yamaha DGX-640 saves files in.  You can play and record a song on the dgx-640, import the file to the computer, and Midi Sheet Music will play the file, and/or print sheet music.

Here’s the caveat- I don’t read sheet music, so not real sure how accurate it is.  But it seems to follow the song well enough.  Now that I know how to print sheet music from my digital piano, I’ll try to post the sheets along the way.  If you want to hear them played, all these songs are posted here on this site, and on YouTube.

One more thing; I’m not perfect.  Yeah, big shocker.  I work on a song until it’s comfortable, but not so much that it loses spontaneity.  The result isn’t perfect, but it feels more ‘alive’ to me.  The sheet music shows everything, mistakes included.  The idea isn’t that you memorize each and every detail, but that you use this as a guide and inspiration for your own playing.  Please bear this in mind when you think “Good golly, he really goofed that one up!”   :^)

One more… one more thing:  If you like the free downloads, if the site helps you in some way and you’d like to let me know, the “Donate” button is default set to .75 cents. You don’t have to, and you’re welcome to the music whether you do or don’t, but if you’d like to say “I like this page” with a cup of coffee, you’re entirely welcome to!  :^)

Now, without any further ado:  Free Southern Style Sheet Music for Piano!

  1. I love your version of “When We All Get To Heaven” & sure hope you post sheet music soon. Thanks so much for this website & for sharing your talent.

    • Hi Bill, sorry for the slow response; I must have missed the email notifications. Thanks for the comment! I’ve taken a long hiatus from the site, life kind of got in the way… but I’m hoping to start back up. Your encouragement really helps!

    • Hi Claire, Thank you for the compliment! Of course, hard to play depends a lot on where you are in your skills, but it’s a lot simpler than it looks. Left hand goes back and forth to the beat, right hand plays a simple melody with a little variation here and there. Learning how to play a grace note was the best thing that ever happened to my playing. It takes a straightforward piece and makes it sound full and rich. If you give it a shot, I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised!

  2. I can’t thank you enough for your version of Wildwood Flower. I’m afraid it may be very difficult for my modest ability, But I’m going to give it a good try!

    • Hi Elspeth, I’m glad you liked it. It’s a beautiful song, and has appealed to me for ages. You can learn it, just take things one note at a time. And when you’ve got it down pat, post a youtube video- I’d love to see it!

  3. Thank you so much for these free resources. I play many different styles by reading sheet music but haven’t been able to recreate that distinct southern sound. Ear players just have something special! Thanks to the sheet music to follow I have a guideline now. God bless!

    • Hi Jennifer, It means a lot that you enjoy the style and are getting use from the sheet music. I’ve been away for a while, but comments like yours make me think maybe it’s time to come back. Thanks for the encouragement!

  5. Hello from ROmania,
    I first found your version of Battle hymn of the Republic. It was one of the best versions I ever met(obviously started to play it a little bit like you). Keep sharing songs more often. I really love your style, and I started to learn some of your style. My piano sounds better now!
    Wish you a great year. GOd Bless you and your work!
