Santa Claus is Coming to Town Chords
Santa Claus is coming to town is a Christmas song written by Haven Gillespie and John Coots. Eddie Cantor recorded this song in 1934 and became an instant hit with over 100,000 copies of sheet music sold and 30,000 records in just 24 hours. In this video I will spare you the embarrassment of singing but will demonstrate the melody and chords played together (chord solo).
The chords are lead sheet are written below. I have taken liberties in changing and adjusting some of the chords to give a jazz flavor to the tune. These liberties are the cornerstone of jazz and is accepted and expected in most jazz settings. As usual keep on strumming.
