The Easiest Tune Book Of Christmas Carols is a splendid collection of twenty of the most popular and favourite Christmas carols in simple two-part harmony, with fingering, Guitar chords and lyrics.
Eleanor Franklin Pike has compiled a fabulous collection of basic tunes with the easiest of arrangements suitable for young beginners. The left hand remains entirely in the five-finger position, while the right hand plays the exact reproduction of the melodies, transposed into the simplest keys. The Easiest Tune Book is perfect for young (or older) beginners, of around grades 1 or 2, enabling them to easily play and learn some of the most timeless carols of all time.
Some of the best, most enjoyable carols are included in this book, such as God Rest Ye Merry, Gentlemen, O Come, All Ye Faithful and Silent Night, all expertly arranged by Franklin Pike. As well as including lyrics and Guitar chords, what's really handy is some helpful fingering suggestions, which allow anyone to progress really quickly not just with these songs, but with Piano playing in general.
The Easiest Tune Book Of Christmas Carols is an old book, but the content remains as fresh, useful and beautiful as ever. It's testament to the brilliant arrangements of universally-loved tunes that this book still inspires and instils the Christmas spirit in beginning pianists so many years after its original publication.
