Default Guitar lesson for christmas song guitar arrangement (j. Sibelius)

Hi!

If you wonder what would you play in christmas party, here could be one option. i made arrangement of Jean Sibelius' Christmas carol "En etsi valtaa, loistoa". It's about 100 years old but still beloved christmas song in Finland. The lyrics are about praying world peace and happy christmas both for rich and poor.

There is first verses played in normal speed and then slowed with notation and tabs. I hope you like it!

Kindest, Mikko

Beautiful tune, well played! A couple of big stretches in there And very nice of you to include the tab. Merry Christmas from the USA.

Thank you! I'm glad you like it! Yeah, those stretches are little bit too big for my small hands but maybe easier for someone else. This song is very much in the Finnish christmas tradition and I haven't done any x-mas carol arrangement yet for Youtube so it was fun.

From 1992 they have played the American movie called "It's a Wonderful Life" for every christmas here in Finland. That is also one part of our christmas tradition very strongly. Thank you for that LOVELY movie. And Merry Christmas!
