About this tab version
This is the lead part for Casting Crowns' version of Silent Night. The strings part has been adapted in some places to fill in. Was this info helpful? Yes No
Title: Silent Night
Artist: Casting Crowns
Album: Peace on Earth
Words: Franz Gruber, Joseph Mohr, & John F. Young
Music: Mark Hall & Adam Lester
Tempo = 78
Electric Guitar

NOTE: If you capo the 3rd fret, it makes it a lot easier. There are a lot of 3rd fret notes that could just 
be played open with a capo. Also, the strings part has been adapted to fill in around measure 32 just before
the bridge.

Tone: Very clean with a little reverb. Use a volume pedal to back off for those ghost notes.
