icekid767 - That was a very cool arrangement. You played it beautifully. I particularly love those fills.

Your cat's toy squeaked on the beat. laugh Talented cat you have there!

nice, icekid - I'll have to use those fast little grace notes in something. I like the arrangement, but I don't think I could do the fast arpeggios. So much to learn - But nice work.

Thanks guys. This arrangement is right out of the Charlie Brown Christmas music book, note for note. Vince Guaraldi liked those grace notes and they're super easy to do.

As for the cat, I think we're on to something. She only plays with that toy when I play the piano. smile

I’ve really enjoyed all the submissions here so far!

And, what an unexpected pleasure to have our host, Frank B to join us!

Here is a new Christmas song I wrote recently. I’ll be performing it at a Christmas musical program at my Church this Sunday. It’s nothing spectacular, but I hope you all like it.

Take care!

Here's a quickie from me which everyone knows, Christmas time is here. I played it by ear since I can't find the lead sheet I used to use for it.

Mr. Super-Hunky, that was superb! Your piano sounded absolutely wonderful, especially the bass… and, your playing was beautiful! I enjoyed it much!

CMohr, thank you for the kind words! I kind of liked that song too.

Take care,

Rick

That was really gorgeous, SH. smile That's one of my all-time favorite Christmas songs. I have the book "A Charlie Brown Christmas" (Hal Leonard), and you inspired me to go through it again. Wow, what beautiful chords with this song (Fmaj9, Eb13#11,..). I liked your arrangement even better than the book's. thumb

Here's a fun little holiday song.. Hope you enjoy: smile

Rick, I love your "Reason For the Season". It was just beautiful.

Mr. SH - "Christmas Time is Here" was great. I loved your arrangement. I miss watching Charlie Brown with my kids, who are grown and have families of their own now.

Elssa - Wonderful arrangement of "Sleigh Ride". It made me happy, and I can hear those sleigh bells. I should listen to this one while I wrap presents.

Hi All...

VERY new here... Found this site via a thread/link to a piece of mine, wherein a few piano technicians were discussing why I "use the strings" like I do for some of my projects...

And in keeping with the "using the strings" technique, here is my humble offering to the Christmas Music thread here...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4aHOHErWms8 (new this year...)

Here's another one from a few years back...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XdVgqttjdTI

Please enjoy these, comment to your heart's delight (I NEED feedback! smile ), and share with others, if you are so inclined...!

Hope your holidays are GREAT!!

SH- Great version of that piece. You gave it a great feeling.

Rickster- that sounds like a standard. You got a winner there.

Happy holidays all! I was just going through a bunch of these posts and got big smiles on my face over and over - nice job all!

In the spirit of Christmas I wanted to share a quick vid I did for my newsletter a few weeks ago. It gives away some nice chord changes to Jingle Bells that, after listening to some of these posts, should be right up everyone's alley.

In constantly being sensitive to not pitching stuff here in the forums, this link just goes to a generic page (vs. my website) and I'm pretty sure I don't mention any products in the vid so I think I'm OK giving this one to you guys as "little present" for the holidays.

(Frank, if it's not OK just take it down. I'm fine with whatever ... just thought it would be fun for Christmas coming up.)

here's the link to the vid:

Take care,

Happy Holidays Scott!

Seems OK to me and thank you very much for posting this. I will have to give this a go later this week. I'd love to also get something similar (and simple) for the good old Classic "The Christmas Song".

I'm also very chuffed that you come on here and share these things with us thumb
