Bob Evans Xmas tunes w/ tab

Postby Jim Jarrell » Sat Dec 07, 2013 6:58 pm

Canadian fingerstyle player, Winfield winner and long time CAAS player Bob Evans does some *terrific* Xmas tunes. Alas, he doesn't have a Xmas CD out (yet) but he does play some of the tunes on youtube and at his website. Better yet, he offers free notation/tab for the tunes. See Individual tunes include:

"Santa Claus is Coming to Town". In typical Evans fashion, he puts a different "spin" on this classic

"Silent Night". Here's a *very* doable arrangement for those that, like me, struggle every December trying to play some Xmas tunes. Great and simple arrangement here.

"Take 3". A *killer* arrangement of "Take 5" meets "We 3 Kings". Again, very doable and to say "unique" is an understatement!

"Hark, It's Harold's Angels". Another tongue in cheek take on a Xmas standard. Tab for this is on his home page

Again, tabs for others at And while there, check out "The Noodle Kitchen" from his cd "Voice in the Grain". Remarkable arrangement that starts out *so* easy...and at the end is....*so* hard. Amazing. Likewise for "Dune" from same CD. Free tab again at his site and it was in Fingerstyle Guitar magazine a few years ago.

Lastly, nope, I'm not his manager. Just a bud (and fellow Tab Pig, long time CAAS attendee and, apologetically, a long time lurker here. Cheers and a Merry to all! Jim Jarrell
