The Christmas season has traditionally been a lucrative time for the gigging musician. For years, author Michael Coppola has performed many traditional songs of the season. In The Christmas Gig Book for Pick-Style Guitar, he has arranged 25 of these chord-melody pieces in both standard notation and tablature. The arrangements are all very accessible by either pick or fingerstyle players and possess the fullness of sound expected by chord-melody or classical soloists. It is a great resource for the working guitarist as well as the novice who likes playing for family and friends, or simply for personal enjoyment.
