Beginner Music Steps: The Wheels on the Bus

Funny Looking Bus!

The Wheels on the Bus is a very simple song 
to learn and so easy to play in the Key of F. 

Sometimes all you need are two chords to 
complete a song. In this case, beginners already 
know that an F chord is FAC but I play the inversion, 
which is CFA and with the C7,
you would play CEBb.

So, if your left hand plays an F chord, C7, F, C7  
and end on an F chord, basically you're playing the
I chord (F) and the V chord (C7)... progression.

I'll give you the melody notes that you will need to
play with the right hand. As you move along, singing
to yourself, be listening for the left hand chord changes.
