A fun book with Justin’s tried and tested format and range of song difficulty. All the usual suspects are in there so there really is something for everyone. I’ve started practicing for Christmas singalongs already!

Christmas singalong practice is going well. Only 4 weeks or so to go! Buy the book and get playing guys. Yohoho. 🎅
ps. I’m going to the Osmonds Rock and Roll Christmas Show in a couple of weeks. Cheesy I know, but should be fun!

Wow, there’s a lot more to some of these Christmas songs than meets the eye! Some difficult chords and quite a jazzy melodic voice to a lot of them. Great fun nonetheless as you can simplify them a bit by missing out some chords. (Please remember l’m a beginner and am addressing this comment to other beginners!) Perhaps by Christmas next year I’ll have them down with all the proper chords!

Well, that’s the festive season over! Thanks to the Christmas songbook (and of course, Justin’s lessons and other songbooks) I’ve been able to take part in lots of party singalongs with family and friends. Great fun and the singing covers up the duff notes and fluffed chords! Thank you Justin for helping to make this Christmas my most musical!

Well, I’m a year further on in my guitar journey. I’m so enjoying revisiting Christmas songs that I haven’t touched for 12 months! Its normally difficult to judge improvement as you don’t notice the difference when you revisit songs every other week, but to come back to songs a year later with improved skills is very encouraging.
I know, I know. You’ll tell me I should be recording myself and posting videos on the forum in order to judge progress and get comments from others. I just haven’t got up the courage to do that yet.

No worries. It took me a long time before I could do it too. But having taken the plunge several times now, it's no biggie. The feedback is great. You'll do it when you're ready.
