Sing-along Christmas carols with chords Nov 28, 2007
This book is for the guitar accompanist - song leader who needs the words and chords for most of the well-known sacred Christmas carols and some of the secular seasonal songs in the public domain. These are also a great way to check up on a guitar student's first position chords and move that student into bar chords. All chord charts are on the page, and chord letters are above the music on a lead sheet with words below the notes. It's a little simplified, it won't match your church hymnal, but this is a very good quick reference book that will fit in your guitar case and serve well if you are leading a carol sing anywhere. I'd like to see some of the lesser-known carols replaced with some of the more modern secular songs for kids ("Rudolph, the Red Nosed Reindeer", etc.), but that would bump the $5 price up some, because those songs aren't in the public domain.
