This book contains 18 holiday songs from the Feast of Favorites series of books, in easy arrangements. Not “simple,” but easy. The integrity and interest of each solo is there, just less notes, for the not-so-advanced player. If I couldn’t (in my opinion) make something sound good “easy,” I did not use it in the book.
The pieces include chord symbols and some fingerings. There is a short text on fingerings and brackets, and a primer on using the chord symbols. There is also a section of hints and tips on many of the arrangements, making this a “learning” book as well as a “playing” book. Click to view samples of some of the arrangements: Easy Seasonal Samples.
You need C below middle C and 24 strings to play this book. No levers needed. See below for the contents of this book.
In the drop-down menu, you can choose from book, eBook, mp3 download set and set of the three “Easy Favorites” books. There is no CD available for this book. The eBook is also available on Sheet Music Plus.
If you prefer sheet music (single songs), these are all available on Sheet Music Plus. Click on a song title and you will go right to that song’s listing. Each listing includes a long sample and an audio sample. The full mp3s (of the regular harp version) of each piece are also available on Sheet Music Plus. If you go to my complete catalogue there and type in a title in the search box, you will find the mp3.
