Guitar Chords and Tabs in C

Brahms’ Lullaby’ is an easy 4-chord song in a major key. We suggest the key of C major or that of G major, as you will see further down this post. The choice is yours, depending on your skill level and the preferred pitch. To play the tune in C one must be familiarized with the full “barré” technique, as the F Chord is present throughout the piece. The remaining C, G and G7 chords are essential for beginners.

The melody range is a full octave from C4 to C5 (see on the Music Sheet in C following), which we find a bit compelling for 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 G

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 G major, as all four chords G, D, C and D7 are essential for beginners. Accordingly, the melody range extends to the octave of G4 – G5 which is more suitable for kids singing (see on the Music Sheet in G following). As mentioned before, you could always use a capo to transpose to G#, A, Bb, or B major by placing it respectively on fret I, II, III, or IV.
