This tune is attributed to Howdy Forester. I have heard it by Ned Luberecki and this is an almost transcription of his piece. I have simplified a few of the lines because I can't play like him.

This year I have recorded a simple version of Frosty the Snowman. It was written for Gene Autry in 1950 by Walter "Jack" Rollins and Steve Nelson. It became a hit for many others as well and also became the centerpiece of a television special. One of my favorite uses of the song is as the ironic background that it provides in the "Don’t Buy Anything” scene (R rated) in Goodfellas. That version was sung by the Ronettes. This song has no mention of any holidays, so please accept my holiday wishes for kindness, compassion, and generosity in this season and for the new year.

The music is from the second chorus of a contata by Felix Mendelssohn (1809-1847) written in 1840 to commemorate Johann Gutenberg and the invention of printing. The words are from a hundred years earlier, written in 1739 by Charles Wesley. In 1855, after both Wesley and Mendelssohn were dead, Dr. William Cummings put the words and music together in spite of evidence that neither author nor composer would have approved, and voila, we have a Christmas Carol. I play it here on my Nechville Classic Eclipse.

Not like BEEFUS (like Hendrix) or like Banjophobic (like Earl), but a straight up version. Sorry for the few muffed notes.

In July, 1945 Mel Torme and Bob Wells wrote the Christmas Song, sometimes know as Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire, as an antidote to the sweltering heat on a Southern California afternoon. It took them about 45 minutes. Nat King Cole made it a hit, recording it four times. Since then, it has been recorded over and over by such diverse artists as Frank Sinatra, Christina Aguilera, Aretha Franklin, Babyface, Chicago, Big Bird and Bob Dylan.

Some chord melody on this standard. I made this arrangement in response to a postumous request to play it at a friend's service. It is in the key of F with dropped C tuning.

A rough cut, based on Alan Munde Mel Bay Tab, but played in gDGBD instead of aDGBD. Lots of Hammers on and Pulls off.
