This collection is a guitar teacher's dream! "A First Position Christmas: Classic Favorites" includes the melodies of 22 popular older Christmas favorites, each carefully edited for the beginning guitarist. Each song has at least two versions - one with TAB and chords included, and one edited for classically trained guitarists, including fingering suggestions. Special effort has been made into making the selections as accessible as possible to those in their first year of study, and all of the pieces are exclusively in first position. They are organized by difficulty level; the first few pieces use only the first three strings and no accidentals, while the final song includes quite a bit of chromaticism.

In addition to this collection, there are also 16 Modern Singles in the "First Position Christmas" available on Sheet Music Plus, each of which includes a coupon for use on the Classic Favorites collection.
