“Happy Birthday” – Traditional

Below is the lesson for “Happy Birthday”.

Helpful Tips

The classic birthday anthem with a twist! This is one of those songs that should be in everyone’s repertoire. While this arrangement is simple for the most part, it does incorporate a few colorful chords and advanced techniques to create a more interesting rendition of this traditional classic. With that said, I would recommend breaking this arrangement into 5 sections:

1) Pickup Bar + Bars 1-2
2) Bars 2-4
3) Bars 4-6
4) Bars 7-8
5) Bars 8-9

The lesson video separates the sections as listed above. Try to master one section at a time before moving onto the next. Have fun and play it at your next birthday event!
