Jingle Bells Guitar Lesson for Beginner Fingerstyle Players

James Pierpoint







C major

Jingle Bells is probably the best-known Christmas song ever written. It was originally composed by James Lord Pierpont in 1857 and was first published under the name ‘One Horse Open Sleigh’.

I’ve targeted this arrangement of Jingle Bells at people who are brand new to fingerpicking and perhaps even relatively new to the guitar. I’ve made it as easy as I can whilst still keeping it fun to play and sounding great.

Alright, let’s pick up our guitars and learn how to play Jingle Bells!
