    Really beautiful! Thanks for including the "Jingle Bells" coda, first tacked on by Oscar Moore- one of my all-time favorite musicians.

    Merry Christmas!

    I do have an arrangement of Old Lang Syne but I'm experimenting with some chords substitutions.

    Thanks Shaun,

    I prefer to not to use my arrangements to show that I can play. My preference is that I try to be as musical as I can. I'd rather people listen and realize that they just heard some music as opposed to listening and just realizing that I have chops. It's like with Stevie Wonder,...we all know he got chops but that's the last thing you think of when you hear My Cherie Amour. You're too captivated by the music and lyrics to notice that he can play and how hip the changes are.

    Happy New Year!

    Oh, I get that. Chops give you more options and tools to perform your music. Listening to pure technique devoid of good music gets old real fast!

    I like your Christmas song on the merits of the music.

    Yea,...tools and supplies are what you use to build the house. But they aren't the house.

    Thanks!
