There's plenty of activity with this song! With banjo, guitar, upright bass, drums, washboard, spoons, and other acoustic percussion, this arrangement of "Shortnin' Bread" allows you to engage your kids on several different levels. First of all, it serves as an easy guitar song using the chords C and G. Your guitarists can finger the chord according to the chord diagrams provided. You can also add Boomwhackers® and percussion instruments, using the Boomwhackers® / percussion part included in the kit.
The cross curricular opportunities of "Shortnin' Bread" abound. It would be ideal during African American History Month, for example. A plantation song, it developed with a variety of lyrics. This arrangement features three verses, but you can add others. (from Music K-8, Vol. 20, No. 4)
