Guitar Chords to Silent Night

Silent Night is one of the best-known Christmas carols, making it ideal for beginners who don’t require advanced chords to learn it quickly and effortlessly.

Beginner guitarists should also understand that this song is written in G major, meaning the D minor chord replaces F major as this makes playing easier for basses and baritones.

G Major

G Major is the key of Silent Night and many Christmas songs, making it easy for new singers to learn and perfect for beginner singers. Its chords are straightforward and its melody familiar – making this key an excellent option for beginning singers.

Silent Night requires you to develop your fretting hand technique. It begins with a G chord played by placing your second finger on the third fret of the thickest string; additional fingers must then play D and B strings as part of this song.

If you’re having difficulty reaching these notes, try using a capo. Simply placing it on the third fret raises all strings a half step and allows more room to move your fingers around; this can make an enormous difference in your playing! Additionally, you can use it as an easy way to switch songs’ keys instantly when out caroling! It may save your life!

D Major

To form the open D major chord, your index finger presses down on the first string (high e), your middle finger on string 3 and ring finger (B). This barre chord has been widely employed by artists from Led Zeppelin to Bryan Adams – even Rush guitarist Alex Lifeson!

Keep this chord in mind; it has the tendency to muffle string 1. Therefore, make sure your fingers are properly placed so as to prevent this happening. Other than that, it is a fairly straightforward chord to play and easily portable.
