Christmas Time Charlie Brown Fingerstyle Guitar

Updated: Dec 27, 2023

This Vince Guaraldi song has an incredible series of chord changes. The whole thing sounds like melting snow. At the request of one of my students I wrote a jazz chord-melody arrangement of the song which you can download below.

Even though I wrote this guitar arrangement some time ago, I have now made a full lesson video on my YouTube channel. I will say, this arrangement is quite difficult, so if you are new to jazz chords on the guitar, or guitar chord melody playing, take your time with this.

Below are the tabs and some explanation, but first, let's have a listen to the arrangement which you'll find just a short ways into this video:

Now let's just look at the chords for the song as we would if this were a guitar lesson here at the studio:

Very rich sounding chords indeed, and not exactly easy to play. But worth the effort. In order to get the melody on top of these chords, I've had to alter the voicings somewhat. But I think you'll be pleased. Here you can download the song, or just view the tab below.
