Play-along accompaniments (instructions are included in the recordings):
Tune (you play the descant)
Descant (you play the tune)
 
This short duo carol could be the starting point for spinning out a beautiful holiday interlude, or simply for easy fun with your playing partner. The descant part goes only up to G so it’s suitable for early intermediate players. A variety of articulations and slur patterns will keep everyone engaged.
