Silver Bells chords – Christmas Songs

 This is higher than the bing crosby version. I'm not much of a crooner. There's a lot
 of little variation you can put in to change it up. This is a tab for people that
want to make it a little more interesting but without making it very hard. This isn't
 something you can just read and sing along to. you'll probably have to get used to
the variations. I'll put different versions of the chords like this: 1A 2A. It just
means which version of "A major" i like to play in certain places. I like to swing to
the E7 from Eb7 to E7. I also like to put some of the melodies in the chords, but I
won't include any of these little things in the tab. The first chorus isn't exactly
like the others because bing sings the beginning drawn out.

If the 2D 2A part gets annoying sometimes I fit in these 4 chords in the same
space. Totally optional though. It's just there if you want to hear something else.

2E Eb 2D 2A


Enjoy!
