This book of ten Christmas Hits For Alto Saxophone hits all the right Noel notes with some of your favourite seasonal pop songs, presented in melody line arrangements by Paul Honey with specially recorded backing tracks to play along with.

For a Christmas Saxophone sheet music book, the Guest Spot series can't easily be beat. It's got ten of the best Christmas pop tunes of all time, the ones that immediately make you excited for Christmas. Absolute classics like Slade's Merry Xmas Everyone, Wizzard's genius I Wish It Could Be Christmas Every Day and the wonderful Fairytale Of New York by The Pogues are included, but this is by no means all. There's also tunes by Paul McCartney, John Lennon and Cliff Richard. 

These songs are fun to play and you're guaranteed to impress anyone with these merry melodies. All the songs sound great on Alto Saxophone, the tone lending itself especially well to the jaunty rhythms and happy sound of these Christmas classics. Once you've learned the melody line from the sheet music song book, you can pop in the CD and hear full performance versions of each song, specially recorded for this series. After that, the next series of tracks on the CD feature the same songs, but with the Saxophone part removed, so you can fill in and perform as if you had a backing band. So not only do you get to add these essential festive tunes to your repertoire, you can also practise playing along with a real band.

This collection of Alto Saxophone Christmas sheet music will bring ten of the greatest popular Christmas tunes ever right to your home. Whether you are preparing for a performance, or practising privately, there is no better song book for this season than the Guest Spot: Christmas Hits Playalong For Alto Saxophone.

          Great tunes and great accompaniment CD. I use this book and Christmas Favourites every year. I have tried many other series but I come back to Guest Spot every time.

          Brilliant choice of music - just about all my poppy Christmas favourites. Wonderful Christmas Time is a little high for the saxophone but might work better on the tenor.

          Guest Spot always provides a good and easy guide, these books are great for a range of ability, oh and you'll have to transpose "A Spaceman came travelling" down a semitone if you want to play along with the original!
