Christmas Chord-Melody Arrangements
Twenty-three great sounding easy-to-play Christmas chord-melody tab arrangements for guitar.

This portfolio contains twenty-three great sounding easy-to-play Christmas chord-melody tab arrangements for guitar. Although chord-melodies are typically played fingerstyle, the arrangements presented here are designed to be played with a pick using open-string first position chords in the guitar-friendly keys of C, G, and E with most melody notes falling between the open-G and the third fret on the high-E strings. The chords by and large are played on the first and third beats in 4/4 time (on the first beat in waltz time) and whenever a chord change occurs. Below is a listing of the arrangements included in this book.
