  1. "Yankee Doodle" is a well-known American song and a nursery rhyme, the early versions of which predate the Seven Years War and The American Revolution. It is often sung patriotically in the United States today and is the state anthem of Connecticut The melody is thought to be much older than both the lyrics and the subject, going back to folk songs of Medieval Europe.

  3. This song was written by St. Francis of Assisi as a poem, circa 1225. It was not put to music until, circa 1899 by William Draper. Like most of the older songs, the timing is unusual. The song is in 3/2 timing (3 half notes per measure or 6 quarter notes per measure). As in all songs, the timing is everything, i.e. look at the second measure. The 2-3-4 is a whole note (four counts) followed by 2-0-0 (two counts) for a total of six counts. The song is easy to play with only D, G, and A chords. Listen to the audio file for the timing.
