Play Metal Christmas Songs and More!

Hey everyone, Billy here. It's December and winter has come. This is the best time to cozy up with your guitar and play your favorite Christmas songs and holiday tunes. 

First thing's first. The best way to celebrate the season is by playing your favorite songs like "Silent Night," "Jingle Bells," and "Deck the Halls" but with a nose-bleeding, overdriven guitar! Learn how to add a bit of metal in your eggnog this season by playing a distorted version of "Deck the Halls" below.

For more traditional classics, join Guitar Tricks Full Access for a ton of lessons on holiday songs.

Next up, a little house-keeping. If you haven't seen it already, we're giving away a bundle of gear thanks to our sponsors at Focusrite, Novation, and Disc Makers.

And that's it. Now go out there and deck some halls, with metal!
