If you spend any time on social media, especially TikTok or Twitter, you may have come across a few sea shanty videos. These clips have been taking over our timelines lately… and we’re not complaining!

Now, we’re giving you the chance to learn a sea shanty yourself, at no cost. Throughout March, we’re offering the song “Spanish Ladies” for free!

Sea chanties have a rich history of uniting and entertaining sailors on long trips across the ocean, and their singable melodies still captivate us today. “Spanish Ladies” tells the story of a crew of British sailors on a voyage home, and it’s shown up everywhere from “Moby Dick” to television and video games. If you want to hear this nautical song in action, check out the video below:

Grab the arrangement(s) that you want to learn and start practicing! And if you post any videos yourself, be sure to tag us on social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or TikTok) so we can see your great performances.
