"My name is Paul Sandberg. I am an actor, singer and teacher in the New York City area. For more information please visit my website at paulsandberg.net.
(singing) Wassail! Wassail! all over the town,
The bread it is white and our ale it is brown;
The bowl it is made of the white maple tree;
With the wassailing bowl, we'll drink from to thee.
Wassail!
That was ""Wassail"" in light hearted cheering drinking song used as a carol. First of if you have not tried ""Wassail"" and you're of legal age, I very much recommend trying it. It is a delicious holiday beverage. Now, getting into the song this really can be broken down to just a hand full of cords, those cords being: ""G"", ""E minor"", ""C"", ""A minor"" and ""D"". I recommend just learning how to play these cords as soundly and as proficiently as you can, as they really, first of all, gonna serve you throughout any song you're gonna look at, and it's really gonna make this drinking-fun-song-waltz come alive. On the piano these cords look like this: starting with ""G"" and ""E minor"", then we have ""C"", ""A minor"" and ""D"". Ooh!. And since it's a waltz, I recommend just having a nice little ""tumchup"".
