Its time to start practicing my Christmas tunes, in case I play for people during Christmas. So, I've got some suggestions for tunes I'd like Kirk to arrange. Maybe put it to vote, once we've got lots of suggestions, the two with the most votes gets arranged by Kirk. Or three. Or more. As many as possible basically. So! Here are some suggestions I can think of off the top of my head:


O Holy Night
It came upon a midnight clear
Hark the herald angels sing
Angels we have heard on high
O come all ye faithful
O little star of bethlehem
While shephards watched their flocks by night
Can you hear what I hear?

I might think of more. Later.

So all members, please, suggest some Christmas tunes! Once we've got a good number, someone (maybe me, though I'll take a while. Really busy. Really forgetful. ) can then compile them into a vote thread.

Sound good?

How about the titles of Christmas songs that are already posted,
appear in alternate red & green lettering as they scroll across the top of the page ie Kirk's lessons >>
(just for the season)

Great idea 6 maybe Clancy could also add a little animated Prancer, Dancer , Rudolph or another of Santa's reindeer between the red and green Christmas titles ;)

Super time of the year to learn some of those fine Christmas tunes.
Hopefully everyone can play one or two.

A good idea 6string but unfortunately the way I have it set up to feed from a xml file, it's pretty much impossible to do.
