As this is a spiritual song, the melody initially gives the feeling of the pentatonic scale, until the B♭ comes down and establishes the F major. The piece uses all the notes of the scale except for the leading note (E). The time signature is 4/4 and the tempo is quite slow. It is of moderate difficulty and by slowly studying each phrase a beginner can easily play it.

Watch the video a couple of times and study each part at your own pace until you get the hang of it. Remember to use both mallets as much as you can. For this purpose avoid using only the hand that is more convenient for you (e.g. the right one if you’re right-handed) as this an important basic technique.
