Twinkle twinkle Little Star

 Jump to Hush Little Baby

 Who knew! There are five verses for twinkle twinkle little star not just the one we all knew about. Play this on any string on your guitar like this-

0077997  5544220  7755442  7755442  0077997  5544220

(How to Read Tab)

This is a great song for two guitarists like if you have a beginner guitarist in the family.

Kids love to play this on the first string out of all of the strings on their guitar but it is a bit harder for whoever is playing the chords – E, A and B7 which trips a lot of people up.

If you pick it on the 1st string (the thinnest string) on your guitar the chords go like this.Strum downwards once on each note of the song.

E E E E A A E(stop)

A A E E B7 B7 E(stop)

E E A A E E B7(stop)

E E A A E E B7(stop)

E E E E A A E(stop)

A A E E B7 B7 E(stop)

Now go play it for your little sister.

Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
How I wonder what you are!
Up above the world so high,
Like a diamond in the sky.
Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
How I wonder what you are!

When the blazing sun is gone,
When he nothing shines upon,
Then you show your little light,
Twinkle, twinkle, all the night.
Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
How I wonder what you are!

Then the traveller in the dark,
Thanks you for your tiny spark,
He could not see which way to go,
If you did not twinkle so.
Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
How I wonder what you are!

In the dark blue sky you keep,
And often through my curtains peep,
For you never shut your eye,
Till the sun is in the sky.
Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
How I wonder what you are!

As your bright and tiny spark,
Lights the traveller in the dark,
Though I know not what you are,
Twinkle, twinkle, little star.
Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
How I wonder what you are!

Here it is in a different key – G. Whoever is doing the picking should do all of the picking on the 3rd string and whoever is doing the stumming should strum down once on each of these chords

Hush Little Baby 

Another great song. I love this. To sing this song in this key puts you in a low singing register but that’s the point really. I recommend getting slower and quieter towards the finish. This is nice fingerpicked. mmm that must be around here somewhere…I have only got the words I remember which are these –

C              C      G               G
Hush Little Baby don’t say a word
G                    G             C          C
Daddy’s gonna buy you a mockingbird
     C        C         G             G
an’ if that mockingbird don’t sing
G                    G             C           C
Daddy’s gonna buy you a diamond ring
C              C          G         G
and if that diamond ring is brass
G                    G            C          C
Daddy’s gonna buy you a looking glass
      C         C        G          G
And if that looking glass is broke
G                    G             C      C
Daddy’s gonna buy you a billy goat
      C        C     G            G
and if that billy goat wont pull
G                   G             C           C
daddys gonna buy you a cart and bull
      C        C           G         G
And if that cart and bull fall over
G                   G             C               C
daddys gonna buy you a dog named rover
       C        C               G              G
and if that dog named rover wont bark
G                   G             C              C
daddys gonna buy you a horse and cart
       C       C             G          G
and if that horse and cart fall down
         G              G                  C         C
you’ll still be the sweetest little baby in town
