  1. Thank you! Could you please add the intro? And the second section (when you know the notes to sing, you can sing most anything). That would be amazing : ) )

    • If it helps, you just take the solfage from later on and apply those notes to the words, so it would be
      So Do La Fa Mi Do Re, So Do La Ti Do Re Do.
      When you know the notes to sing, you can sing most anything

  2. Nice but this isnt complete though. Its missing the intro, i hope you add it. Thank you?

    When I play it on piano, I always do this:

    C
    Doe, a deer, a female deer.
    Dm
    Ray, a drop of golden sun.
    Em
    Me, a name I call myself.
    F
    Far, a long long way to run.

    You’re really just going up the C scale for that part. (literally doing do-re-mi-fa). If you like the way the first three chords sound, they’re okay. But the fourth is definitely an F.

    The second half looks really good! Great job.

    i believe this song is called Doe a Deer or Do-Re-Me, not Do a Deer.
