My name is Paul Sandberg. I'm an actor, singer, and teacher in the New York City area. For more information, please visit my website at paulsandberg.net. We wish you a Merry Christmas, we with you a Merry Christmas, we wish you a Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year. Good tidings we bring to you and your kin. We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. So that is We Wish you a Merry Christmas, a very jolly waltz in G major. To easily play this, break it down into really just a handful of chords. We have G Major, C Major, A Major, D, and B. And those chords, played out, would look like this. G, C, A, D, B, and G. Or, if you would like to make it a little easier on yourself, you can play just the root of all those chords, all in your left hand, by placing your 5 finger, or pinkie, on the G, A, B, C, and D. And those, laid out, go like this. G, A, B, C, D, and then add in the melody with the right hand and sing along. We wish you a Merry Christmas, we wish you a Merry Christmas, we wish you a Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year.
