"My name is Paul Sandberg. I'm an actor, teacher and singer in the New York City area. For more information, please visit my website at paulsandberg.net. ""O come all ye faithful Joyful and triumphant O come ye, o come ye to Bethlehem Come and behold Him Born the King of angels O come, let us adore Him O come, let us adore Him O come, let us adore Him Christ, the Lord"" That was ""Come all ye faithful"", a beautiful song that can be broken down into surprisingly four main chords. Those chords being G, A-minor, C and D. Now, you can play those chords straight out with the look like, G, A-minor, C and D. You can also make your life a little bit easier by playing the roots of those chores in your left hand. Now, that would look like, starting with your pinky on the G, your ring finger on the A, uh let's go for index finger on the C, ending with the thumb on the D. Now, with this hand right there, you're ready to add in the melody. But before we add in the melody, I would like to point out one lyric that always catches my ear, and that's at, ""O come, let us adore Him."" It's so easy to accidentally say, ""O come let us"", as in like, ""The green leafy vegetable."" In order to avoid saying, ""O come, let us adore Him"", we have to add a little what's called a glottis stop on the us'. A glottis stop is just uh' literally, your glottis, your vocal chords are stopping. Input to practice, it sounds like this, ""O come, let us adore Him O come, let us adore Him O come, let us adore Him Christ, the Lord"""
