Level: Easy, melody + bass notes + common chord shapes in 1st position, for students. These are basically just the melody with the bass note of the chords added. I would barely call these arrangements, mainly melody.
Songs: O Come, O Come Emmanuel; Away in a Manger; Good King Wenceslas; We Three Kings of Orient Are; We Wish You a Merry Christmas.
About the level and arrangements - These easy Christmas arrangements are for beginner or intermediate guitarists looking for easy sight-readable songs for the holiday season. I’ve added the lyrics and chords to make them as useful as possible in group or family settings if singing occurs. More advanced guitarists may wish to improvise or work-out intros and extra accompaniment. Otherwise, the arrangements are simple melodies plus bass notes and some filling out of common first position chords.
