This collection of 20 Christmas carols is written for the intermediate to advanced 5-string banjo player familiar with tablature in gDGBD tuning. These tunes are considered timeless folk songs that will enhance your musicianship and technique, and delight your friends and family at holiday gatherings.

Recordings and extensive right-hand fingerings are provided as learning aids for each tune, leaving interpretation and left-hand fingerings up to the player. Readers are encouraged to make their own recordings of the carols to better evaluate their playing.

Most importantly, you’ll celebrate Christmas with the joyous sound of the 5-string banjo! Includes access to online audio.
