I really like carols - believe it or not. I used to sing them when I was in a church choir many years ago!

Silent Night was originally written for guitar by an Austrian guy called Franz Gruber in 1818, I think. My own arragement is all midi stuff - tried to get a guitar sound in there before I found out about Franz Gruber! Also tried to achieve a big organ swell sound in there too.

guitar (a Fender Strat, I believe) that comprised the presentation).
