Merry Christmas to all!!

This is the first song I decided to learn with my newly acquired ukulele. What a fun instrument to learn and play! There will probably be more ukulele covers to come.

 

In standard G-C-E-A tuning, here are the chords and lyric. Enjoy!

C            Cmaj7        C6          Cmaj7
Jingle bell, Jingle bell, Jingle bell rock
C6           Cmaj7     G7
Jingle bells swing and Jingle bells ring
G7
Snowin’ and blowin’ up bushels of fun
D7                 G7
Now the jingle hop has begun

“Mary Did You Know” is one of my favorite Christmas songs. Imagine the very first Christmas night when Mary was holding this baby in her arms, she probably wouldn’t know her baby would walk on water or calm a storm with His hand.  Now, we have the bible telling us who this baby boy Jesus was and why He came – this is what Christmas is about. Let us praise Him for who He is and what He has done for us.

This year, I am experimenting to finger-pick the song. I put the capo on the 5th fret but you can put it anywhere that fits your vocal range. My singing is very so so but it’s kind of hard to recognize the song without the vocal. Haha.. something to work on next year.

Wish you all a Merry Christmas and a New Year filled with warmth and cheers!

Here is a video of my guitar and vocal cover.

It’s Christmas time … let’s do a Christmas song. This year, I have chosen the traditional “Hark! The Herald Angels Sing”. There are many versions of this songs done by many artists. I like Jewel’s version so mine is similar but not exactly the same. Thank you Jesus for His humble birth and let us praise to the new born King!

May the blessings of Christmas fill your home and heart with peace, joy, and happiness. Wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
