When Santa Got Stuck Up The Chimney - 4 guitars

This is a lovely bit of nonsense composed by Jimmy Grafton.

It tells the tale of a rather overweight Santa getting himself wedged in a chimney. Worse is to come - Rudolph tries to help and he gets stuck too, and the cold turns his red nose blue...

There are two versions of the tune in my arrangement - one goes up the neck, and it needs a few position changes or large stretches to bring it all together. The second, easier, part is an octave lower, and can be played entirely in the first position.

So this arrangement suits a novice quartet or a mixed ability quartet, all in one edition...

 

You can hear a snippet and see some of the score on the SMP website
