This book offers guitarists a graded selection of 71 carols for the holiday season. Most of the arrangements are graded variations in that each tune starts with an easy reading beginner arrangement (excellent for students and the last minute reading gig) and ends with intermediate settings using techniques such as tremolo, jazz voicings, and three voice counterpoint. All of the music in this book is typeset in landscape format so that no page turns are required, and printed in standard notation only with suggested left-hand fingering. The book fits beautifully on any folding music stand and (because of the low landscape format) leaves plenty of room for any standard clip-on light. The Holiday Gig Book is an excellent source of holiday tunes for the working guitarist.

  • January 11, 2009 This book is excellent

    I purchased a number of Christmas books for classical guitar and I found this one to be the most accessible not only for the player but for the listener too. The arrangements are on the whole interesting with variations that are pleasant and can be used on a gig with...

    little preparation. I recommend working out your own fingerings on the arrangements. The variations include simple melody and bass, block chord harmony, Alberti bass system, arpeggiated accompaniment and melody in the bass. There is little variation in key (mostly in C but some G, D, A) but I found this to work rather well as the intention of the book is to present melodic and harmonic textures in a simple and 'straight to the gig' approach. Excellent purchase.

  • December 08, 2008 Awesome - Great Arrangements

    Many holiday standards (some old / out of copyright, some newer) and really excellent arrangements. They are all very meaty and approachable. Most of them stay in the first four-to-six frets as well, making it easier for advanced beginners and intermediate to play. Usually two arrangements per song, one...

    a bit faster / more complicated than the other. His arrangements do a great job of intertwining different (guitar) voices and melodies, each very distinct, but combining well together.

  • November 16, 2007 Choose this book!

    If you need just one book for fingerstyle/classical guitar for playing at church, caroling, etc., this is the one! What a great selection of Christmas classics and some for Hannukah, too. Most songs are arranged with two or three versions with varying degrees of difficulty, making the book suitable...

    for a wider range of playing abilities. On the down side there is no TAB, a few of the fingering references seem wrong or out of place, and there are no chord markings, but on the plus side, there are no alternate tunings and no page turns! I will definitely be using this book for years to come.
