This is a simple "Ted-like" arrangement of "O Christmas Tree."
Sort of Ted meets "Charlie Brown's Christmas." 

Ted worked really hard on his holiday material. He seemed to really enjoy the possibilities of the material harmonically; like a good puzzle that you'd done before. He told me that he'd start preparing holiday pieces in August to be ready for December and said that his friends thought he was nuts to be playing "Let It Snow" when it was 90 degrees in the shade outside. After the New Year's celebrations were over it was on to the "wedding season." Ted understood the business of a solo guitar player!

I hope that this little arrangement is useful and that everyone has the happiest of holidays.-Bob

Hi! I love the arrangement of this song that was posted, but i wondered if anyone would be able to have enough patience to do one of those chord sheets like Ted does for the version of O Tannenbaum that I stumbled across on YouTube.
Could anyone help me out? I'm not able to see well enough to watch his hands. If anyone could help me with that, it would be most appreciated.
That is one of the most touching versions of that song I've ever heard, and I'm glad I found Ted.

FenderBender,
I am the person that uploaded the "O Tannebaum" video...Yes I have to agree with you that it is a special arrangement...but watching it over and over...I have the feeling that Ted simply heard the chords in his head, and improvised the entire arrangement...His face appears to be thinking about the next chord cluster.....

Two things may help:
I think another camera man is there, if anyone recognizes him, I'd be glad to pay for a better angle tape, or paint his house....
Someone said he is working on a iPod friendly version of the 03' seminar - that'll be a great help.

I think it's one of the best versions of any tune,

Just wanted to revisit this thread to draw attention to Bob's, Steve's and Rafikenn's transcription pages.  
Perhaps we should clean them up and post in the "From Students" section?  
Whadayathink?
