I have three children that just get giddy during December — excited each morning as they get closer and closer to Christmas Day. That excitement is so contagious. I love it. It’s the kind of energy and eagerness that keeps you up at night. I wanted to capture that joy and anticipation in this arrangement. People have told me that this reminds them of the Pirates of the Caribbean. Maybe one year the Pirates franchise will make a Christmas special and THIS could be the theme song! Instead of Carol of the Bells it could be titled ‘Jack Sparrow of the Bells.’ =)” -Steven Sharp Nelson Carol of the Bells attributed to Mykola Dmytrovych Leontovych God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen: Traditional English Carol Arrangement written and produced by Steven Sharp Nelson & Al van der Beek Recorded, mixed & mastered by Al van der Beek at TPG Studios Featured on the album “Christmas Cello” Video Producer Paul Anderson Cinematographer/Editor Tel Stewart For my fellow music

Okay,well I play the guitar,but I am just wondering do you need a good singing voice to play the guitar? cos I don’t have a good singing voice :( and 2nd question why don’t the songs played on the guitar sound EXACTLY like the original song? Just wondering :) Thanks!
Can your voice be better by taking singing lessons? :) Thanks!

    if you want to sing, it helps to have a good voice, but i can’t imagine why it would make any difference to playing guitar. songs played on guitar don’t soung exactly like the originals because you may not be using the same electronic effects or playing the same type of guitar

    Only if you plan to be a solo act.

    The Guitar can be a solo instrument as wel as a backup instrument. In fact; a leading Guitarist of his day, Ferdinand Carulli demonstrated the Guitar for Beethoven, then in his twenties and still able to hear. Beethoven exclaimed,” Why that thing is a miniature orchestra within itself.” And yes, voice lessons can improve your voice.
