Oh Christmas time, the most wonderful time of the year. If you’re looking to get into the holiday spirit by learning some Christmas song chords and tabs, this collection of classic songs is a great place to start. There are a ton of popular Christmas songs and various renditions of each to choose from. However, in this list, I selected the best 40+ classic Christmas songs that everyone knows.
Now of course, almost every one of these songs have been re-recorded by various artists over the years. I tried to select the most popular version of each song, however, if you like one artist’s version better than the one I selected, you may just need to find the specific song chords / tabs for that version.
You’ll also notice that I’ve included 3 columns in the table below:
- Song title / Artist (linked to the song on Spotify)
- Tabs from Ultimate-Guitar
- Guitar Pro tabs / Songsterr tabs if GP was unavailable.
If you choose to download the Guitar Pro version of the tabs I’d highly recommend using Guitar Pro to open the files. This piece of software helps you get a better feel for the timing of each tab and provides you with tools to learn songs much faster. Furthermore, if you’d rather have an officially tabbed book of Christmas songs, I’d recommend checking out these popular Amazon options:
- Fingerpicking Christmas: 20 Carols Arranged for Solo Guitar in Notes & Tablature
- Christmas Standards: 27 Chord Melody Arrangements in Standard Notation & Tab
- Christmas Guitar: Easy Guitar Tab
- Fingerpicking Christmas Songs: 15 Songs Arranged for Solo Guitar in Standard Notation & Tab (Fingerpicking Guitar)
Without further ado, check out the full list of Christmas song chords and tabs below and start spreading some holiday cheer through song. P.S if you want to get the full playlist, check out my Spotify playlists page.
