A few week’s ago on Episode 24, I shared some of the favorite Christmas songs my wife and I have recorded over the years. I promised there were more songs on the way coming this year and so now, here they are.
This first one is folky/bluegrass take on Angels We Have Heard On High. I sang and played all the instruments and my wife, Melissa, sung harmony.
Next, we changed things up and did a slow, serious version of Oh Come Oh Come Emmanuel sung by Melissa. The instruments include acoustic guitar, organ, a ride cymbal played with brushes and a cajon, which we altered to sound extra deep, echoey and distorted, sort of like a low, rumbly explosion. In fact, I recommend listening to this with either headphones and a system with a fair amount of bass.
