What Child Is This

Here is a simple rendition of the popular Christmas carol "What Child Is This" in Am. The chords are: Am C G Em Am F E. Playing an Fmaj7 sounds nice. The whole song is built around these chords. I have included some arpeggios, but you can throw them in anywhere you like and it will sound great. Play it like you want to.

The next page has the tablature which needs little or no explanation. Feel free to conatact me with any questions.

The final page has the wonderful lyrics and a brief story about the poet who wrote the words. Merry Christmas!

There is another excellent version of this in Em by the guitar master Charles Gasci, lesson number 8184.
