Jack and Jill – Guitar Chords, Tabs, Sheet Music for Guitar, Printable PDF

“Jack and Jill” (also sometimes referred to as “Jack and Gill”) is a traditional English nursery rhyme which dates back at least to the 18th century.

The phrase of the two names suggests, possibly, a romantically attached couple, as in the proverb “A good Jack makes a good Jill”. Jill or Gill had come to mean a young girl or a sweetheart by the end of the Middle Ages. Today the song is often used as a love song for kids.

Guitar Chords and Tabs in C

“Jack and Jill” is an easy 3-chord song in a major key. We suggest the key of C major (and, alternatively, the key of G major as you can see next). To play the tune in C one must be familiarized with the full “barré” technique for the F Chord. You could as well replace it with D minor. The remaining C and G  chords are essential for beginners.

The melody range that results when singing in the key of C is a 10th from C4 to E5 (see on the Music Sheet in C following) which we find a bit compelling for most children’s voice pitch. Nonetheless, 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

As mentioned above, we also suggest the key of G major, as all three chords G, D and C are essential for beginners.

Accordingly, the melody range extends to a tenth of G4 – B5 (see on the Music Sheet in G following), and calls for some practice to get to the B note above staff. However, it is perfect for bass voices if sung an octave lower. Nevertheless, you could use a capo to transpose to G#, A, Bb, or B major by placing it respectively on fret I, II, III, or IV.
