Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas

Hey everyone!

In this lesson, I’m going to show you all how to play “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas” in the key of G. I’ve simplified it as much as possible, but there are still a couple of intermediate level chords in here (Bm7 and F#7).

The lesson begins with the chord shapes needed to play the first verse: G, Em, Am7, D. We practice playing them in order and then take a look at a simple strumming pattern that we can use for the entire song.

After playing the chords and strumming pattern together, we pause to take a look at the “From now on” part – where the chords go by pretty quickly. We work that out and then finish learning the verse.

Next we learn the bridge, which requires some new chord shapes: Cmaj7, C#m7b5 and a few others. After getting through these chord shapes, we finally practice the last part together, a bit slower than the original recording and that’s it!

Hope you enjoy the lesson and I’ll see you soon!
