Newest additions are The Holly and the Ivy, Good King Wenceslas, O Come, O Come Emmanuel, and Away in the Manger. None are excellent, but all passable.

I had to do The Holly and the Ivy since those are our two cat's names. My brother-in-law fostered four kittens around Christmas time about 11 years ago. The others were named Kris (Kringle) and Noel. I pushed to choose these two because they reminded me of this tune!

Wow, JohnG! They are fantastic. You are really sounding great. You were getting nice sound for the C and G strings. Nicely done. Thanks. 

Now, keep in mind, I am not good at identifying notes when I hear them, but I am pretty sure you had quite a few on the C and G strings and they sounded great! I, like was mentioned in wtw’s post, have so many issues with those low register strings.

Thanks, @Mouse. And yes, there were a lot of notes played on the C and G strings. They must sound better on the recording than they do to my ear while playing.
