Last but not least, if you need a backing band to play along, or would like to lead your friends and family in a holiday sing-along, choose from the dozens of Christmas Style Files we have available. Here are descriptions of a few of them:
– Christmas Shuffle builds slowly, adding dynamic layers with each variation until the horns and strings arrive with polyrhythmic harmony.
– Christmas Blue lets you play “Blue Christmas” in the style of Elvis Presley. A solid backbeat with added layers of orchestration, guitar and flute make the somber Christmas classic come alive.
– Christmas Swing is perfect for accompanying songs like “Let It Snow” or “Jingle Bells” with orchestral strings and big band horns… plus a little sleigh bell action to make it extra festive.
– Christmas Swing 2 provides a perfect country swing style for songs like “Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer” or a mellow version of “Jingle Bell Rock” a la Hall & Oates.
– Christmas Waltz offers a more subdued opportunity to play traditional holiday classics like “The First Noel” and “The Little Drummer Boy.”
– Christmas Pack One – Multi-Style Pack contains several holiday Styles with a dynamic mix of genres.
– Ready to try mixing up your holiday songfest with a little tropical inspiration and reggae flair? Check out Jamaican Christmas.
May your holiday season be filled with music and cheer!
