Closer and closer, Christmas is coming. I guess it’s a good time to refresh my two takes on Silent night as it’s not to late to learn one of them.
First one is an absolute basic. It could easily be your first fingerstyle song. It consists of melody line and some bass notes. No chords, very straightforward. Alternatively it can be a last resort carol if you wake up on Christmas Eve with nothing to play ;).
Second arrangement is in the same key (Amaj) but it utilises full chords (basic though). If you have barre in your arsenal it should be pretty straightforward.
I wish you all Merry Christmas with your family, friends and guitar.
This is a video lesson that I published quite some time ago but I guess it would be nice to put it here for anyone not familiar with my youtube account. The song is called Baby Steps and it’s in A maj. While writing it I was avoiding all the beginners dreads like barre, wide fingerings, weird chords or thick texture.
