The free guitar lesson on this page features Jingle Bells guitar chords, lyrics and strumming patterns that are easy enough for beginners. Learn to play one of the kids' all-time favorite Christmas songs and be the star of your family's holiday sing along.
As you will note, I'm playing the song in the key of D so that beginners who may not have mastered barre chords can learn to play Jingle Bells on the guitar in time to wow their friends at this year's Christmas party. By next year, your skills will have advanced to the point that you can try playing it in the key of C.
To play Jingle Bells on the guitar as demonstrated in the video guitar lesson, you will need to know how to play the following chords.
Here is a free, printable copy of the Jingle Bells guitar music lesson that we covered in the video.
Everyone knows the words to the first verse and the chorus but did you know that the song actually has three more verses? These are not as well known but just as fun to sing as the first. Print a copy of the sheet for each guest so that everyone can sing along and join in the fun.
