This book offers guitarists a graded selection of 71 carols for the holiday season. Most of the arrangements are graded variations in that each tune starts with an easy reading beginner arrangement (excellent for students and the last minute reading gig) and ends with intermediate settings using techniques such as tremolo, jazz voicings, and three voice counterpoint. All of the music in this book is typeset in landscape format so that no page turns are required, and printed in standard notation only with suggested left-hand fingering. The book fits beautifully on any folding music stand and (because of the low landscape format) leaves plenty of room for any standard clip-on light. The Holiday Gig Book is an excellent source of holiday tunes for the working guitarist.
