                          HO! HO! HO!

Since the holiday season is coming soon I thought I'd post a TAB for
"Deck the Halls".  It's an arrangement one of my teachers gave me last
year.  It's easy to play and it sounds good.  The long introduction
will mesmerize your audience (says so right here in the small print
at the bottom of the page).  Play as little or as much of the intro
as you want, and use pieces of the intro between verses as you see
fit.


    REQUEST:  I would like to see more Christmas/holiday tunes
              posted.  Thanks to the person who posted "We Three
              Kings"!  If you've got a favorite, please post it!!

Capo on 5th fret, all positions listed are relative to capo.  The "^"
symbols represent the beat.
