Hey Ho, Nobody Home Glockenspiel / Xylophone Sheet Music and Note Chart

We could say that Hey Ho, Nobody Home is in minor scale, but actually is in dorian mode, as there is no leading tone. That, in D minor, means that the C (do) is natural and not sharp note. Time signature is 4/4.

Try to sing while you learn to play the music phrases one by one. Since you’ve practiced enough and you feel sure about yourself playing the song, you can invite a friend and play it together as a round. Enter the second voice at the 3rd or 5th meter.

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.
