Happy Xmas (War is Over)

Animated Happy Xmas (War is Over) tab by John Lennon on guitar. So easy you'll be playing in minutes.

This Christmas anti-war classic is a repeating chord progression played on acoustic guitar. The same strumming pattern is used throughout the song for each chord:

d - dudu (repeat) (d = downstroke, u= upstroke)

This simple strumming pattern leaves you free to concentrate more on the song chords:

A major - A sus2 - A sus4 - A major - B minor - B sus2 - B sus4 - B minor - E sus4 - E major - E sus2 - E major - A major - A sus2 - A sus4 - A major

D major - D sus2 - D sus4 - D major - E minor - Em maj7 - Em7 - Em13 - A major - A sus2 - A sus4 - A major - D major - D sus2 - D sus4 - D major - G major - A major - E minor - G major - D major - E major

Repeat from the start until the end of the song.
