We Wish You A Merry Christmas
« on: November 28, 2017, 03:39:56 PM »

It was suggested to me that this tune (like Happy Birthday) was not quite as straightforward as it seems.
Judge for yourself!  Sheet music is attached.

Full blog including tutorial:-

Performance only:-

I figured this out and then immediately did this blog so it's fairly rough.  You'll get the idea though I'm sure!

Cheers

Les

Well done, great video in short time. I too have had low A (pull) retuned to C and it is really useful. Don’t think I ever used it for low A. I shall work on improving basses from straight um-pah to something more melodic. Perhaps give it the Cutting treatment and play the tune more legato using cross-row fingering.

Thank you Martin.  I enjoyed the challenge.  I don't think I've ever worked a tune out and blogged it that quickly!!  Please let me know if you come up with your new treatment of this.

All the best
