Guitar Chords and Tabs
“ABC Song (The Alphabet Song)” is an easy 3-chord song in a major key. We suggest the key of C major. To play the tune in C one must be familiarised with the full “barré” technique, as the F Chord is present in every line. The remaining two C and G chords are essential for beginners.
The melody range that results when singing in the key of C is a 6th from C5 to A5 (see on the Music Sheet following) and is well suited to most children’s voice pitch. Nevertheless, you could use a capo to transpose to C#, D, Eb, or E major by placing it respectively on fret I, II, III, or IV.
