Hi, all -

Very much a beginner here and was curious about learning a few Christmas songs. Anyone know any good books or place to locate some songs online? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you and Happy Thanksgiving!

Go to the "Learn" tab on the upper left hand side of this page. Hover your cursor over it, then type in "Christmas" into the search tabs box, hit enter, and you will get something like 30 arrangements of different tunes. If you're looking for something specific, then type the title of the tune in the the search tabs box and see if something is there.

As has been posted already, there are numerous Christmas tabs in the tab archive. If it's not a pdf, you will need the correct software to download, play and print. Many of our tabs are Tabledit (.tef) and you can download a free demo here: tabledit.com/tefview/index.shtml .

For other software, go here and see if there's a free demo: banjohangout.org/w/links/brows...yid/v/37.

All our tabs are FREE so download, play, print and enjoy!!

Welcome to the Hangout, we're mostly a very friendly, helpful bunch.

Here's the first one I learned. Really easy and a great sounding song.

Check out Bill Nesbitt on YouTube - he has a great beginner version of Jingle Bells.

Best Christmas/folksong book ever, imo. If you can find a copy somewhere:
