Lesson notes

Here Comes Santa Claus was written and first recorded by American singing cowboy Gene Autry in the 1940s. This solo guitar arrangement treats it in a ragtime style, inspired by John Fahey's take on some Christmas tunes from his early album The New Possibility. It is done with a steady alternating bass in swing time and has some challenging techniques for both hands.
