The Wheels On The Bus

The Wheels On The Bus is one of those songs I think all parents get familiar with, even if they would rather not. But if you're going to have to hear it, why not join in and make playing music a bonding experience with your child? :)

This tune is super easy to pick up as it uses just two simple chords! It's quite repetitive, as most children's songs are (much to the chagrin of the parents), but in this case, it works out well for you.
