Because we’re on our way to visit family in Austria for several weeks tomorrow this year’s xmas medley is out a bit early. It starts out with a somewhat jazzy version of “The Christmas Song” (aka “Chestnuts Roasting On An Open Fire”) and ends with my hefty version of “Rocking Around The Christmas Tree”.

This year all guitars were recorded with my recently purchased headless 7-string Kiesel LM7X (see pic below) that I got from a San Diego county-local custom guitar shop. It’s equipped with a really great Hipshot trem that stays in tune even when you really abuse it.
I recorded all tracks (drums, bass, guitars, and some piano and synths) in about seven evenings after my kids went to bed. Such is the life of a parent 😛

Also of note is that I started making these xmas medleys 20 years ago (in 1999). I skipped a couple of years in the beginning so there’s only a total of 19 medleys available. Still a nice milestone. Looking forward to medley number 20 next year 🙂

Enjoy and happy holidays!
