Guitar Chords and Tabs

‘Mary had a little lamb’ is an extremely easy 2-chord song in a major key. We suggest the key of C major, as both C and G chords are essential for beginners.

Besides that, the melody range that results when singing in the key of C is a fifth from C5 to G5 (see on the Music Sheet following). This range 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.
