Artists of all levels of ability will enjoy playing the songs of Christmas in this nicely arranged collection.

    Though this book will tell you it for the earliest beginner. I wouldn't suggest this book until after completion of the Palmer Hughes Book 1 course at the earliest. Most of the selections do contain an optional 7th or minor chords and would not be suited to a 12...

    bass instrument. Having a piano background I was able to play through some of the advanced pieces. Advanced compared to the easy pieces they are, but in actuality, I have a feeling they are more intermediate in actual playing level. I loved the fact that this book did contain so many different formats or arrangements of the same piece though I'll probably never play these in a band. I hope PH comes out with a Christmas book containg more popular songs with the same idea. There were only two in this book of 12 "carols". I am an adult semi-professional musician and advanced beginner accordionist.
