Hello Everyone... the Christmas and Holiday season will be upon us soon.  HO HO HO...  As we know we have our annual Christmas Group Project.  Yahoo.gingerbreadhouse

I  was pleased to pull out a song book that I bought last year to do a project with Wookieman.   I found some of the songs daunting last year.christmaswreath

While I can't make them lovely on the first go 'round, I was sooooo soooo excited to play some of them yesterday casually.  What a good time!!!christmascandle

Holly Jolly Christmas

White Christmas


Jingle Bells.. (always could play this.. Essentials book very early in the book)

Silver Bells

Up on the Roof top / Housetop

Rockin around the Christmas Tree

And then.....

my other holiday Favorites.  I can't wait to see what I can do with my favorite.  

Oh Holy Night.christmascandle

And then my other songs that I love to play ... O Little Town of Bethlehem, Oh Christmas Tree.

I am kind of a Holiday Elf ...so this year I am the Violin Elf.  I hope we get to share and play a lot of holiday music this year.

Cheers, Tonichristmaswreathchristmaswreathchristmaswreathchristmaswreathchristmaswreathchristmaswreathchristmaswreathchristmaswreath

I found out last week that the jam I go to is having a Christmas party!!  We will be playing Christmas music.  I have dusted off my Christmas music and working on it to try and memorize it.

I am close with I Saw Three Ships, Once in Royal David's City, Go Tell It On The Mountain, He Is Born, and Come All Ye Shepherds because these are the ones I played with my sister-in-law at our family party last year.  I am thinking of learning drones for I Saw Three Ships to make it a bit bluegrassy.

By the way - we have not been invited back!!! :(

I love Jesu Joy Of Man's Desiring and Gesu Bambino but I know I will not be able to learn these for the party.

Violinist start date -  May 2013  

Fiddler start date - May 2014

FIDDLE- Gift from a dear friend. A 1930-40 german copy, of a french copy of a Stradivarius.  BOW - $50 carbon fiber. Strings - Dominants with E Pirastro Gold string.
