Christmas Time is Here


Every year, I’ve been wroking on trying to add a new tune to my Christmas Tunes repertoire. With everything that goes on in the world, it’s easy to get caught up in all the negativity. For me, the “Charlie Brown Christmas” special has always been one of my favorites.

Here’s the chart I used. Please note that what I played was not absolutely precise to the transcription. Further, none of the solo is transcribed. I took liberties with what’s written.

If you want to know what I was thinking while improvising, it was simple: “Find notes that sound good and play those.”

…and yes. I’m being just a little bit smart-ass.

Russ Costa runs an open-mic jam at Mari’s in Quincy, MA every other Thursday night. I love playing this gig because I get to take long guitar solos. This is us messing around with the tune “Whipping Post” by the Allman Brothers. This clip is from 1/26/2012 at Mari’s. Raw, loose, fun!
