A mix of well known and a lesser Christmas flavored songs, available in a range of different tunings. This is a great choice for beginning students as well as intermediate players who aren't quite so intermediate yet. The CD package adds value to the bargain price.

(Acoustic Guitar's Private Lessons)
Traditional, easy-to-play holiday classics. Good for the advanced beginner guitar student. Builds on a 'part one' book, but if you already know how to play a few chords, this book stands on its own as a decent Christmas guitar songbook.
