I love Christmas Carols. I remember singing them in grade school assemblies, in church as a child, and at home with my family. All those melodies still float around in my head and, no surprise, I like to doodle with them at this time of year when I play guitar. My friend Paul was over Wednesday night for our weekly jam session, and we recorded Silver Bells on my n-track mixing software. Paul plays rhythm and bass and I play lead. I actually recorded a second, harmonic lead track, played on a nylon-stringed guitar, but took it out of the mix because it made the song sound too busy. Silver Bells should be clean and simple. Although our version of the song would by no means be fit for any stage, I know that you, dear reader, will be forgiving of our feeble efforts.
