Easy Ways To Play Jingle Bells On Guitar


In this Guitar Control lesson, I want to show you one of the most popular and yet easy Christmas Guitar Tabs. Your kids will learn how to play this song in a matter of minutes, even if they barely know anything about guitar.

Christmas is a great time that brings the family together and what better than playing some tunes for your love ones. If you’re just starting to play guitar or if you feel like your skills are not yet at that level, then this the lesson for you; you will learn the most popular Christmas song ever in 3 different ways.

melody. This way you will get familiarized with it and it will be easier for you to either sing it later or to play a more richer arrangement.

The second way you will learn this song will be just the chords, since you already know the melody, then learning the chords will help you comp those moments in which your love ones are feeling like singing with you.

The third way will be a very easy, but yet awesome arrangement in which you will play the bass and the melody. So let’s get started.
