CHORD SHAPES

Welcome to this Happy Xmas Guitar Tutorial by John Lennon & Yoko Ono! This is a beautiful song and definitely one of my favourite Xmas songs. It’s a very chord based song that has a lot of sus2 and sus4 variations, so it’s a great exercise for those looking to practice chord variants. In this video I’ll also teach you an easy way of playing the verse if you’re more interested in just strumming and singing along.

Big thanks to Eric Ben for his vocals on this track, check out his Youtube channel here – https://www.youtube.com/user/ericbengayomali

Enjoy! Like this #happyxmas video by #johnlennon and subscribe to the channel for more videos in the future!
