Guitar Chords and Tabs
“Itsy-Bitsy Spider” is an easy 3-chord song in a major key. We suggest the key of D major, as all the three chords D, A and A7 are essential for beginners.
The melody range that results when singing in the key of D is the octave A4-A5 (see on the Music Sheet following) which is perfect for most children’s voice pitch. Nonetheless, you could use a capo to transpose to D#, E, F, or F# major by placing it respectively on fret I, II, III, or IV.
