Christmas Songs For Solo Bass – new collection of arrangements now available

Hi everyone.

Yes, that time of year is sneaking up on us at an alarming rate and soon the sound of relatives saying “play us something on that big guitar” will be ringing in our ears. With this in mind (and the fact that I’m a bit of a big kid where Christmas is concerned!) I have put together a collection of solo arrangements which is now available from http://bassbook.co.uk .

So what is it? Basically, for the princely sum of £3 ( as I type this, just under $4.50) you get a zip file containing the following in PDF format:

10 Christmas chordal arrangements for solo bass in notation and tablature

Auld Lang Syne, Away In a Manger, Ding Dong Merrily On High/Deck The Halls, In The Bleak Midwinter, Jingle Bells, Joy To The World, O Come All Ye Faithful, O Little Town of Bethlehem, Silent Night, The First Noel

11 Christmas melodies specially transposed to “easy” keys ( ideal for less experienced players) in notation and tablature

As above, but “Ding Dong Merrily On High” and “Deck The Halls” are presented as seperate pieces

2 mini lessons

An introduction to natural harmonics and a lesson on the two handed tapping technique used for the arrangement of “Jingle Bells”

So how do you get it? All you have to do is go along to http://bassbook.co.uk where you can pay by credit/debit card or Paypal by clicking on the Buy Now button. Once I receive your payment, I email you the zip file – it’s that easy 🙂 I will also send you a link to performance notes to assist in playing the arrangements.

I also have a favour to ask of you – if you like the arrangements and use any of the bass forums or social sites, please tell people about it 🙂 Word of mouth is often the best advert an independent musician can get so any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks for your time and take care,

Alun
