There was a book published by John Stropes called "John Fahey's Chirstmas Songs for Guitar. This book contains note-for-note transcriptions of nine solos and one duet, for finger-style guitar arranged by John Fahey."

I believe that it was an exact tab and sheet music from John Fahey's Christmas CD. I got my copy years ago via E-bay.

It's probably long out of print now. There appears to be a copy of it available on Amazon for $80

I picked up the John Fahey CD and book quite some time ago. I got them at different times and different stores; I just happened to be looking when they had what was probably quite old stock on their Christmas music shelves. The arrangements provide quite a different feel from traditional versions; contemplative.

What I finally bought. Learning "It Came Upon A Midnight Clear" for my 2016 Christmas song.

I wish this book was available at a reasonable price. A PDF was available on the Internet at one time but was taken down. I would gladly pay a non-scalper price for it.

It's out of print but maybe John Stropes has one?
