Blue Christmas Chords & Guitar Lesson

Welcome to my Blue Christmas chord chart. The song is in the key of E major (E, B, B7, E7 & A), so to make it easier for more beginner players, I have added a Capo to the second fret so that we can avoid that dreaded B barre chord.

You’re welcome! 😉

Blue Christmas Strumming Patterns:

For the strumming you can use a straight eighth note pattern of you can swing the rhythm a little bit like Elvis does. I means the is a “Blue” Christmas, so using a shuffle pattern works really well.

1 +  2+  3+  4+

Shuffle Strumming:
1 + a 2 + a 3 + a 4+ a
D   UD    UD    UD   U
