A DADGAD Christmas is a collection of twenty-one arrangements of Christmas favorites for solo fingerstyle guitar, all in DADGAD tuning. The book is divided into two sections: Gig Book – a set of short, easy to play arrangements, and then Performance Arrangements – a collection of more complex performance-ready arrangements.
The first part of the book, the Gig Book, contains arrangements that are easy enough for beginner, but that are also meant to act as templates for your own arrangements. With a bit of practice you should be able to pull out these arrangements whenever you are asked to play a Christmas song and read the music, elaborating on the basic arrangements simply by adding your own variations within the basic structure. See page 8 for some tips on ways to enhance these arrangements.
The second half of the book, Performance Arrangements, features longer, more complete arrangements of nine tunes, ready to perform in any setting – with friends and family, in church, or in a concert.
This book includes a physical CD, and you can also download the music immediately. The book will be shipped to you, along with the physical CD.
Includes unlimited streaming of A DADGAD Christmas via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.
