"My name is Paul Sandberg. I'm an actor, singer and teacher in the New York City area. For more information please visit my website at PaulSandberg.net. Deck the halls with boughs of holly Fa la la la la, la la la la 'Tis the season to be jolly Fa la la la la, la la la la Don we now our gay apparel Fa la la, la la la, la la la Troll the ancient yuletide carol Fa la la la la, la la la la That was Deck the Hall. Notice my pronunciation deck the hall. We're only decorating one hall with boughs of holly. This song can be very easily played with by noting three main chords. We have E flat, C minor and B flat. And those on the piano look like this. We have E flat, C minor and then B flat. You can make it even easier on yourself by playing just the roots of those chords in your left hand. To do that, we go ahead and play with our pinkie five finger on the B flat. Our ring finger, four finger on the C and go ahead and play the E flat with one of your remaining fingers. I'm going to play with my index finger or my two finger. And then you go ahead and add in the melody. The melody, which is in your right hand, is going to really flush out the chord which we've basically stripped down to its bare necessities for our left hand. Deck the halls with boughs of holly Fa la la la la, la la la la And there you have Deck the Hall in about as simple a manner as you can possibly make it."
