AABB 2 parts each played twice with different endings. 18 bars in total. There are suspended notes and all fingers will be used on the right hand (plucking) In Easter Hymn, there are several parts where multiple strings must be sounded at the same time (chord). If the 3 strings are next to each other in a group, you can strum the strings with your thumb in downwards motion or pluck all three strings with your 2 fingers and thumb (pim).
Strum with thumb downwards only works if the strings are group next like in Bar above. If there are gaps between strings or you have to play every other string. You’ll need accuracy so pluck each string-strumming no longer works.
