Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas by Martin Hugh

Here is my Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas chord chart. This is one of my favorite Christmas songs particularly the Karen Carpenter version. I love old Christmas songs for the variety of chords they use. But, that variety can sometimes make them a little more challenging to play. If you do not know your 7 chords just yet, don't worry. When you see G7 you can play a regular G chord and it will work perfectly fine.

Strumming:
1 2 + 3 4+
D DU D DU

If you want to get a little fancier, you can work on playing bass notes (the lowest string of the chord) on the 1 and 3 beat.

Strumming 2:
1 2+ 3 4+
B DU B DU
