On Christmas Day

This is actually the first time I ever tried to write a Christmas song.  Christmas morning when I got up, I picked up a guitar (as I often do in the morning). However, as I started noodling, a new tune emerged. It actually took about an hour or so to work through, as the form and the nuances of the repetition took some sorting through.

As it was Christmas morning,  it felt like it was and should be a Christmas song, and even a few snippets of possible lyrics came to mind.  The melody & harmony are sort of wistful, so I imagined the song was about someone who could not be home “On Christmas Day” but really wished he could be.

Due to all the action of the time of year, I wasn’t able to get around to finishing the arrangement and recording until today.

This should officially conclude the holiday music for this year, I think.
