O Holy Night
The “Instant Play” Method
1. Place your right hand in the position shown and play the numbers without
moving out of that position. The numbers are written above the lyrics.
2. Your left hand will play the chord (shown in a cirlce) under the right hand
numbers. In this particular song, you will match the broken chord notes up with the
correct right hand note. It will be shown clearly on the song.

3. The broken chords will be show to you like this:
The C is where you play your pinky and the two X’s are where your other two fingers
will play. They will be matched up to the right hand numbers.
Remember, each chord that is show like this will be played as broken chords so you
will play each note of the chord 1 at a time. Instead of playing all three notes at the
same time and get 1 sound, you will play three individual notes separately and get 3
sounds.
Practice Tips:
1. Practice the entire song with your right hand before adding the left hand.
(Give yourself a few days to feel and hear an improvement)
2. Practice the chords with the left hand until you feel comfortable with them.
(This may take as little as a few days up to a couple weeks.)
3. It is very helpful to hum or sing the melody as you play the song.
Caution:
Take your time and enjoy the process. Do not rush it. It will take practice to
be able to change positions without missing a beat in the song.
