Hehe I'd like to have some statistics over how common that scenario is - it has definitely happened a bunch of times to me. Great arrangement Sergio - thanks! Merry Christmas everybody!

This is great cover of this song, and you played it so well. Very nice tone.
Beautiful arrangement and wonderfully played. Merry Christmas!

Fantastic. Great lesson Sergio.
Everybody has an uncle who, in the middle or final part of whatever Christmas eating, suddenly says:
‘It´s Chrismas, let´s sing! Anyone has a guitar?’
Then you look the another way, concealing. But your mother or your sister answers, looking at you:
‘Yes, he has an acoustic guitar, and bothers us with it all day’
And you give her a kick under the table.
Then you start to explain than actually you are an electric player, and you like overdrive pedals, great valve amps, and groups like Iron Maiden, Metallica, etc, but you aren´t a specialist in fingerstyle guitar.
‘Finger…what?’ says your uncle. ‘Just play something easy’ and he moves fingers on the air with an expressive face, like he would be playing the “Concierto de Aranjuez” in the middle of Madison Square Garden.
‘Yes, yes’ says everybody, clapping. ‘A Christmas Carol, please’
And you can´t say how was happened, but suddenly you are with the acoustic guitar in your hands in the middle of the dinning-room, with ten or twelve persons (twenty or twenty four eyes) looking at you, waiting the most high guitar performance (and your sister smiling of pleasure in a corner).
Well, this lesson perhaps can be a solution for that common and uncomfortable scene. (And if you think that is late for performing it this year don´t worry, study for the next, because next Chrismas your uncle will say the same)
This is the well-known carol “Silent Night” As a traditional piece, play it like you would singing, emphazising melody.
Tuning is dropped d.
Happy Christmas everybody! ¡Feliz Navidad!
