Guitar Tablature: “All Through the Night”
“All Through the Night” is a traditional Welsh lullaby. Learning how to play “All Through the Night” on guitar will give you a chance to practice and demonstrate the E7 and A7 chords, which are often played together. In the music, you see repeat signs, which tell you to play certain measures twice. In this case, you play measures 1, 2, 3, 4, and then measures 1, 2, 3, 5. Use the two-finger E7 for this song.
To play “All Through the Night,” you need to know how to play D, E7, A7, and G chords; how to read repeat signs; and how to stay awake during this intensely somnolent ditty.
Practice E7 and A7 by strumming each chord four times, switching back and forth between them. Remember to avoid striking the 6th string on the A7 chord.
