Jingle Bells

This Jingle Bells is in the key of G. That’s a better key for singing than A. On the other hand, A would allow easy use of the open E string for drones.

Then again, maybe F would be the best key for singing. I like F for fiddle tunes, but beginners are not familiar with the finger positions for this key.

This is an example of how choices always leave something behind.

For printing the tune out here is Jingle Bells as a pdf.

This tune is as happy and upbeat a Christmas song as you can find. For a more devotional song, here’s a link to O Holy Night.

    Hi, I am confused with the system of your tabs, it is hard to read for a complete beginner.
    For example, if a number is between two strings, I dont know if I should put my finger on the bottom or top string.
    Just make a big round red dot on the intentioned place where to put the finger, it shouldnt be hard to accomplish.

    Maybe the tabs are crystal clear to anyone who got little musical experience, but I have none.

    Apart from that, indeed good beginner songs!
    Just wanted to clear that out, hope you dont interpret it wrong =)!

    Keep up the good work!
