Hi Everybody and Happy Holidays!
This week I've got a few simple but beautiful embellishments that you can use to dress up the version of Silent Night that I showed you last week. This time we'll be playing a lot of the melody in thirds. Focus on clarity and lyricism - really hear the melody in your mind's ear as you play those double stops. The effect is really elegant. There are also a couple of chord substitutions here to add some variation.
As always, take it slow, focus on lyricism and enjoy! And Merry Christmas!
