Acoustic Christmas Instrumentals

Full lessons available

Whether for the stage or for the family, these acoustic instrumentals will brighten anyone's holiday. Learn them in time for Christmas eve.

Each song presents its own set of challenges. "Silent Night" is slow and melodic, but has enough unique moments to be a nice little show-off piece for the intermediate player. If you find it too difficult, you can always simplify it by by playing the first "verse" twice and leaving out the riffs in between the melody. "Little Drummer Boy" cranks it up with DADGAD tuning and rhythmic slap harmonics a la Michael Hedges. "What Child Is This" is meant for beginners with a few basic chords and some repetative finger picking. Take them slow and enjoy filling your home with music.
