Hello everyone! It is November 1st! I always love November. It reminds me that holidays are just around the corner – Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years! I love all the food, the fellowship with friends, and the holiday cheer that comes with these holidays.
Holiday music is seeping into my brain already. I find myself humming Christmas tunes, anticipating hearing them played in stores, and especially, playing them on the piano. Remember when I played my jazz song for you before? Well, I also said that I hoped to share more songs soon. Today is that day! My favorite Christmas song to play is “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen.” I figured November 1st is as good a time as any to bring out the holiday music!
I hope you enjoy my video below! It was so much easier recording this one than my jazz song. I wasn’t near as nervous, and we only had to do three takes. Which is a lot less compared to the 12 or so we had to do before, haha.
Let me know what you think! Oh, and I was also playing this with a very painful finger. I got a file cut on my left ring finger while at work yesterday. So. Painful. I thought paper cuts were painful…they’re nothing compared to a file cut. However, I was still able to perform the piece. Proud of me? 😉
Have a fabulous rest of the week! It’s almost Friday!
