Christmas Favorites for Solo Guitar
30 Best Loved Traditional Songs for Bluegrass Guitar
book/CD set 56 pages by Dix Bruce
$17.99.

Learn great flatpicking solos on 30 wonderful Christmas and Holiday tunes! Most solos use the basic “bass note/strum” technique with melodies integrated into common chord patterns. Others feature “the arpeggio strum,” a beautiful chord melody technique. Along the way you’ll explore transposing solos from one key to another, changing and mixing meter (3/4 to 4/4), soloing in more than one octave, playing a solo with others as a round, and more!

Check out the sample page/song and audio, plus the downloadable Christmas Favorites Complete Lyric booklet at right.

Christmas Favorites Complete Lyric booklet
We couldn't fit all the great lyrics to these wonderful traditional songs and carols into the guitar solos book. We know you'll want to sing along with the guitar solos so we put together a downloadable book with all the lyrics to all the songs featured in Christmas Favorites for Solo Guitar. We hope it'll come in handy at parties, when caroling, or around the tree with the family.
