Christmas time, I love it. I am a sucker for romance, christmas lights and feel good songs. It’s a time where I teach my guitar students the joy of playing and singing christmas songs. Two for the price of one.
We all have our favorites and it’s funny to see those old christmas songs appearing in new jackets over and over again. A great way to inspire a new generation with the real classics. Sometimes I really enjoy a new version, but I keep coming back to those warm beautiful voices of Bing Crosby, Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin.
Yet I hope new christmas songs will be written every year and that the best of those songs will become classics again. Anyway, in the meantime there are a zillion songs you can enjoy. I created a top 35 to get busy. Grab your guitar, start playing and building your christmas repertoire!
Just click the song title to listen to the song on Youtube. Click “Chords” (next to the song title) for the chords and lyrics to the song.
