    I know the challenge has not officially kicked off yet, but I just can't help myself! Blame Martin - he's the one who posted the challenge before it starts. 🙂

    This is my own arrangement of a German Advent hymn. Enjoy!

      Eric Phillips Amazing! I was just looking online for an arrangement of this as it's my favorite Christmas carol.  Some wonderful additions in your version.  If you are aware of any nice published arrangements of this please let me know.

    • Brett Gilbert Thanks, Brett. It’s good to hear from you. I also went online to look, but I found nothing that I particularly liked, so I came up with this on my own. It’s basically just me noodling around.

    And here is Llobet's famous arrangement of this Catalan Christmas song. I found small variations in different editions, so I mixed and matched a bit, going with what I think sounds best and is most playable for me. My main focus was the wonderful melody, keeping it legato and beautiful.

    • Paul Kennedy Thank you, Paul. I figure it's an arrangement, so I feel okay taking a few liberties.

    I have always meant to learn La Nit de Natal so here is my excuse. I started this morning will keep you updated.  I've also got an arrangement of a traditional English Carol 'Tomorrow will be my Dancing Day' arranged by one of my old guitar teachers so will have a go at that.

    • Derek Nit de Natal is a great choice, Derek. Emmanuel has a livestream lesson on it that might be helpful. I look forward to hearing you play it!

    For me this has always been the time of snow, of stories, of fairy tales. So I'd like to share these songs with you:
    Snowflight (A.York)
    When you wish upon a star (arr. N.Takeuki)
    The wiz (R.Dyens)
