Slade - Merry Christmas Everybody Acoustic chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
This classic song by the 70s UK Glam Rock stars: Slade was originally played on electric
guitar which would have meant a lot of barre chords.

However, Ive done this as an acoustic guitar-friendly version for those who prefer to
cut down on their barred chords. If you are not an advanced player, you can stick to the
chords excluding those in brackets (and in fact if you dont like a barred Bm, you can 
play just Em in its place throughout quite comfortably  it sounds close enough in this context).
Better players can bring in the bracketed chords. Note: D alt is an altered version of
D, there are 2 choices shown  one with quite a stretch on the little finger, the other
with a move up the neck  take your choice!)

Have fun... Merry Christmas (if it's that time of year) and if you have any comments
feel free to email as below. Cheers, David
