Rocky and Balls – The Christmas Song Song (Chords)

Rocky and Balls – The Christmas Song Song

Sophie Madeleine’s much anticipated second album The Rhythm You Started is out now and packed with fantastic songs. You can listen and buy on Bandcamp (if you’re cherry-picking the essential tracks are 1, 2, 3 and 5). Which leads nicely into this years most requested song.

Suggested Strumming

You could use old faithful:

d – d u – u d –

And throw in a bit of:

d – d – – u d u

Do either of those once for each chord except:

– Am – D at the end of the choruses (twice for each).
– Just one down strum in the ‘Five gold’ and ‘Fa la la’ bits.
– The intro and outro. She moves down the whole G chord shape one fret (0121) and slides it up into G.

Buy The Christmas Song Song on Bandcamp.

Requested by Jessie, Mindy and Kate.
