Song: Step into Christmas
Artist: Elton John
Lyrics: Bernie Taupin

The other versions on here have way too many errors and are not complete.
This is tabbed to the record. I think this is pretty much spot on...
the only unsure part is the E7 in the chorus (it could be an Em but both sound fine).
This is a fairly easy version of how I play it - only 1 barre chord and a nice beginner riff to learn.
I've added a couple of add-ons at the very end which can be heard on the record aren't essential.
I welcome any improvements/highlighting of errors.

+++++++++++++++++
++   ADD-ONS   ++
+++++++++++++++++
Some nice add-ons here 1 and 2 are fairly easy unless a beginner.
These sound great and the first 2 should be in the tab above really.
For each of these please give the record a listen while you follow and it will all make sense.

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++



1. At the end of each verse you can do the following:

 Em                          A       Asus4 A
Stepping into Christmas with me




2. Similarly for each A to Am transition in the verses you can play A to Asus4 quickly to Am.




3. I never play this but you can try it if you're fast enough or get a second guitar to play
   this with you - basically during the verses, the D chord at the end of the 2nd and 4th lines you can
   play this riff TWICE right after a down strum of the said D chord. In fact you can hear a second guitar
   throughout but see what you think.


e|--------------------|
B|--------------------|
G|--------------------|
D|--3--2--0--------0--|  x 2 after 2nd and 4th D chords in verse. 
A|-----------0--2-----|
E|--------------------|
