13 Best Christmas Songs to Learn on Guitar (With Tabs)


With Thanksgiving over it’s officially Christmas time, and one of the best (or worst, depending on who you ask) facets of the holiday season is the music.

If you’re a guitarist it’s likely you’re looking to learn some great Christmas songs in preparation for family gatherings and the like. If so, you’re in luck; we’ve compiled a list of thirteen great Christmas tunes with free guitar tabs included.

Most songs listed below will include both an easy and hard version of the tablature. The easy versions are limited primarily to the song’s melody. While they’re extremely simple, they’re perfect for beginners. If another family member or friend can play a few basic guitar chords, you can try a two-guitar duet for a fuller sound.

For the more experienced guitarist we’ve listed the full or “hard” tabs. These are more complete, as they’re essentially the rhythm and melody parts combined into one tab. Choose whichever difficulty is best suited to your skill level and enjoy.
