I was just trading posts with Joeybug and she's learning her xmas songs. I thought I'd put a post out here to see what ya'll ukers are doing for the holiday in the form of
uke-caroling? What songs are you doing? With others or solo?

I play three types:
Secular Sing Along
Sacred Sing Along
Chord Melodies

I play mostly for my own self and my family. Last year some friends and I did a sing along and made a dinner for some shut-ins at a care center.

You can find the chords for anything you want on line, and Dominator and a few others have the tabs posted for some nice chord melodies.

I have a couple of copies of The Ultimate Christmas Fake Book (http://www.amazon.com/dp/B000XZX4HI/) that we will sometimes play out of around Christmas. I highly recommend it.

I'm going to try to learn a couple new fingerstyle arrangements this year.

So far it's Seeso's version of 'The Christmas Song'

And John King's arrangement of 'Carol of the Bells'

It might take me until next Christmas to learn Carol of the Bells though...
