Guitar Chords and Tabs in G

“Humpty Dumpty” is an extremely easy 3-chord song in a major key. We suggest the key of G major (and, alternatively, the key of E major as you can see next), as the chords G, C and D are essential for beginners.

The melody range that results when singing in the key of G extends to an eleventh from G4 to C6. Due to this melodic stretch the song is quite demanding for a voice that isn’t well trained. The problem occurs in the last phrase: “Couldn’t put Humpty together again” where the melody climbs to B and C above staff – if it’s too high, try singing the phrase an octave down. Nevertheless, you could use a capo to transpose to G#, A, Bb, or B major by placing it respectively to fret I, II, III, or IV.

Guitar Chords and Tabs in E

As mentioned above, we also suggest the key of E major, as all the chords E, A and B are essential for beginners. To play the tune in E one must be familiarized with the full “barré” technique for the B chord. You can however, take advantage of the fine resonance from the open strings A and E.

The melody range that results when singing in the key of E is an eleventh from E4 to A5 (see on the Music Sheet in E following). Τhe vocal requirements are similar to those in the key of G, but manageable for most children’s voice pitch. Nevertheless, you could use a capo to transpose to F, F#, G or Ab major by placing it respectively to fret I, II, III, or IV.
