Heres 2020’s attempt at learning this wonderful arrangement… I know its rough & still got LOTS of stuff to work on & fix, but this is where I’m at for now.
The arpeggios are tuff to get clean without deadening the E string with your hand. In this video, I think they came out better the 2nd time thru the song. Ben said no set picking directions, HOWEVER, I’m PRETTY sure you’re not supposed to be doing the thumb-over fretting thing in measures 33, 45, & 48… The good news is I’ve got plenty of time to get this ready for next Christmas !!
@mike_thomson recently mentioned “No Fear” regarding working songs above your playing level, and I agree with him. This song is above my level, yet here we are, and I’ve had a lot of enjoyment just working on it! (To compare what this sounded like when I first started playing it - to now in this video, I’m feeling like I’ve won the lottery, yeah it was THAT rough !)
Merry Christmas and a Blessed, Happy, Healthy, & Musical New Year to All!
