Christmas Songs – The Christmas Song
Learn how to play Christmas Songs – The Christmas Song note-for-note on guitar.
Difficulty level: Intermediate
Barre chords: Yes
Thumb over chords: No
Playing Style: Fingerpicked
This lesson teaches an arrangement of the classic Christmas song for acoustic guitar and voice. It’s a great exercise in jazz progressions. Just take the bridge, for example. It’s one of the best examples of a jazz composer moving through various ii-V-I changes to set up new key centres. But if all that makes you glaze over, fear not. The song is taught note-by-note and it’s playable by any guitarist with a reasonable level of experience.
