All arrangements are easy to play and learn. I wrote the arrangements so you could hear the melody clearly without having to be an advanced player to get the satisfaction of playing the song so you recognize the tune. These types of songs are excellent for your development because you know the tune so well, you will instinctively improve your own ability to play and accent melody notes. I'm very proud of my arrangements. I think you will enjoy them and learn a lot from the DVD too. There are some slower songs, several in minor keys and 3/4 time tunes too. Many students have told me it's the best Christmas Banjo Book out there. Thanks, Ross Nickerson.
