This is probably one of the lesser known Christmas songs out there. But, its a great one to play on the guitar. It has some great lead riffs and bluesy style chord progression to match.
Recorded in 1958, this is the grandaddy of rock and roll Christmas songs. It is so rock and roll, that singer/guitarist Chuck Berry explicitly mentions in the lyrics that all he “wants for Christmas is an electric guitar.” As one of the easy Christmas songs on guitar to master, if you can play F, C and G chords, you’ll have no problem rattling off “Run Rudolph Run” under your next Xmas gathering. Leave it to the man that wrote “Johnny B. Goode” to compose one of the best christmas songs for guitar.
This piece is suitable for beginner to intermediate guitarists. So, have fun and get this festive number under your belt!
