Any of you guys learning/playing a Christmas song

I've been working on Robert's "Silent Night". If I get good enough I hope to post a clip of it. Really loves how he plays it.

Ahh, great to hear! It's not advanced but it sounds good, yes?

I have another Xmas song I could share... if I find the time...

I wrote down my own arrangement Rudolph The Red-nosed Reindeer for my students. Quite fun to strum this song, and to play the melody as well.

If you have a looper pedal, you can strum the chords, set it to loop and then play the melody to the loop.

robert, I can play it , but the timing isn't as good as I would like it to be, but give me some hours of practice I'm going to nail it.  And yes , your version is a very lovely version and I like it .  Rudolph sounds good , will you post it

I've spent so much time learning a dozen or so songs for a band I was trying out for that I haven't the time to learn Christmas songs.  Of course my kids would appreciate it.

The band I recently joined has us playing Blue Christmas (Porky Pig Style!) and Chuck Berry's Run Run Rudolf.
