Lesson notes

Silver Bells was written by Jay Livingston and Ray Evans for a movie, The Lemon Drop Kid starring Bob Hope and Marilyn Maxwell. Bing Crosby and Carol Richards recorded and released it before the movie came out in 1951. The song went on to be a much bigger hit than the movie.

This arrangement is not too difficult but does have a different feel than many other Holiday lessons here. It is in 3/4 time and played with a swing feel. It also includes an extended intro and outro to help set the mood.
