Carol of the Bells

By the way, if you can play this, and your name is not John King, you should be boiled with your own pudding, and buried with a stake of holly through your heart. What a chestnut! Link

Update: Here's Prof. King playing it on one of Mike DaSilva's Santo reproduction ukes.

I can play the first four bars . . . :-) I do note later on that this arrangement requires several notes to be played at the 13th and 14th frets. My Koaloha only has 12, so I guess I won't be roasting THIS particular chestnut! ;-)

Angry Herb: to add insult to injury, John plays this on a repro Santo uke, which has a fretboard about as long as your hand is wide. Grrr.
