How to play Baby Bumblebee on the Guitar.

“Baby Bumblebee” is a nursery rhyme and singing game about a child who is stung by a bumblebee, and his mommy is obviously not so happy about it. The melody of the song is based on the stare song of Arkansas (from 1949 to 1963) named “The Arkansas Traveler”. This song was composed in 19th century by Colonel Sanford C. ‘Sandy’ Faulkner.

On the same melody there are several known versions of the lyrics, including the children’s song “Baby bumblebee”.

“Baby Bumblebee” is an extremely easy 3-chord song in a major key. We suggest the key of C major (and, alternatively, the key of A major as you can see next). To play the tune in C one must be familiarized 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 G4 to E5 (see on the Music Sheet in C 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.

Guitar Chords and Tabs in A

In case you have any difficulty with the “Barré” technique, or if you would like an easier option for your younger students, we suggest the key of A major, as all three chords A, E and D are essential for beginners. In this case you should lower the pitch of your voice with the melody ranging a 6th from E4 to C#5 (see on the Music Sheet in A following).

Singing ‘Baby Bumblebee’ in the key of A, is equally well suited to most children’s voice pitch, although it might not sound so bright compared to the C key. Nevertheless, you could always use a capo to transpose to Bb, B, C, or C# major by placing it respectively on fret I, II, III, or IV.
