The Christmas Song.
« on: December 01, 2020, 10:49:27 PM »
I play it every year, but it doesn't get any better
I make the chords up as I go along, as I've never had the music.

Edit,

I'm astonished at the number of people who've shown an interest in this.

Of course everyone will have a different idea of how to play it.

But for what it's worth, these are the settings I used, which I don't think were particularly imaginative.

The style is Christmas Ballad,  "C" variation with intro 2.

Oo Vibrato

Thanks for the kind words.

I've used a few jazz chords that I suspect won't be in the sheet music. I guess I was influenced a bit by the Nat Cole version.

I'm thinking of asking my Tyros for some sax lessons, I can't play mine as well as it that!
