In this tutorial we will learn a simple, single note melody arrangement of "The Star Spangled Banner".

This tune was originally a British drinking song written by John Stafford Smith in the 1760s. In 1814 Francis Scott Key wrote the poem "The Star-Spangled Banner" to be sung to this tune. Key's poem and Smith's tune were officially designated as the national anthem of the United States in 1931.
