Subject: RE: Chord Req: Nz song- Christmas on the Beach
Seems you found a good solution.
C+ (1003) and C° (2320 or even 2020) are not difficult technically, but would need additional learning, of course. Obviously you have a recording different from the one Robyn linked to, so the harmonies may differ (slightly) as well. Shifting to D is another challenge.
BTW, to make that clear: my reservations are not about the lyrics as such. The fact that a government office promotes the song, however, may be interpreted as directed against foreign forces (British, US, Japanese, global capitalism ...). Children and adults should be aware that parting from traditions is a painful process whose opponents are within our hearts and our own societies, not in London or wherever.
Merry Christmas and enjoy your music!
