Advent calendar

With 2020 almost at its end, why not challenge yourself with a good old daily jamming? Our Advent calendar is the perfect occasion to get this holiday party started. It’s super relaxing since you’re not burdened with having to choose what to play. Just check the song of the day, accept it with open arms please don’t drop your uke or axe while doing so and start playing along.

Jingle Bell Rock

How about “Jingle Bell Rock” by Bobby Helms to get this thing going? If you’re a beginner, this slow beat song has some difficult looking chords. Don’t worry about them. Just hit the “Simplify Chords” button. On the other hand, since it’s the holiday season, you’ve probably got some time on your hands to check them out. In the end, it’s going to be totally worth it. Think about it: by playing this song, your granny’s eyes will light up, and your parents might even start dancing around the Xmas tree.

Driving Home For Christmas

The Advent calendar is our version of Russian Roulette you never know what you’re gonna get. Could be rock ‘n roll, but it might as well be  “Driving Home For Christmas” by Chris Rea. Yeah, now we’re talking about classics! This track’s got it all: funky tunes, crooning vocals, piano licks, guitar chords, and a swinging beat. Yes, the chord progression is a bit of a challenge, but hey, trying out new stuff is good for your skills. For the singing part, you might ask that over-excited uncle of yours to perform during the family gathering. 

Sleigh Ride 

When the first snow hits the ground, there’s only one thing you can do, right? Yup, grab a sleigh and run to the highest hill in your neighborhood! After rolling around for a few hours it’s time to take this ride indoors.  “Sleigh Ride” by the Ronettes is the perfect song to jam to when you’re cold and tired after a hard day of snowy fun. When you’ve mastered the chord progression, ask a few friends or family members to back you up with some “Dingelinge, dingelinge, dingelinge”.

Rockin’ Around The Xmas Tree

One thing is certain about our Advent calendar: you will definitely find yourself “Rockin’ Around The Xmas Tree”. Everyday there’s just another groovy holiday track waiting for you to be played. Are you up for the challenge? If you’re not, that’s okay too, just check the Advent calendar from time to time to get inspired. You never know what snowy hit may lit the spirit of this season in your heart. Happy jamming!
