Weezer – The Christmas Song (Chords)


Weezer – The Christmas Song (Chords)

Time to break out the Christmas songs. In case you’ve joined us in the last year, the Christmas tabbing policy is tabs for well known songs and chords for completely obscure songs. Thus neatly dividing themselves between songs you can’t play and songs you don’t want to play. Weezer’s Christmas Song qualifies by virtue of it being, I’ve read, a Japanese B-side.

Suggested Strumming

It’s in 3/ 4 so you can go with:

d – d u d –

Once for each chord in what I’m calling the verse (except the final F – do it twice). Then four times each in the bridge section

You can vary it up with all down strums for the intro and the, “Since I found…” section.

Twiddly Bits

Some D minor pentatonic for the intro:


Christmas Song Intro (Tab)

And F major scale for the solo (reprised over the last verse):


The Christmas Song Solo (Tab)

I’m not sure how you can buy this song but you can buy Weezer’s Christmas record on Amazon.

    good job woody. weezer is an interesting act. this song is so unchristmasy, though. a true christmas song for me personally is R.Kelly – Ignition (remix). i’m not sure why, maybe it’s just down here in miami, but they play that song more frequently around the holidays. it’s kinda subliminally implanted in our shit, the good feelings attached to xmas and to that song. it’s just a feel good jam anyway. why am i talking about this

    Also, frustratingly true.

    Will: Glad to hear it.

    I still have some difficulties with the strumming pattern.
    I know, I’m not black, I have no rhythm ^_^

    Anyway, I found this video quite useful for me:

    Thanks this is a great tab! Starting to get some new christmas tabs together and wanted to add another little bit of info about this particular song… there are alternate lyrics and both versions were recorded and have been subsequently released by the band. So if you think you heard this before but it was a little different… it probably was. The above youtube link has some of (possibly all of?) the other lyrics. :) HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!!
