God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen / We Three Kings

by Barenaked Ladies

 

interpretted by

 

This version of the song was given to fan club members a few years ago. Sarah Mclachlan sings with them.

The cool thing about this song, instumentally, is the bass line. Unfortunately, i do not play bass. So, i did not tab it.

Get this song off napster while you can... Listening to the song helps a lot in getting the stumming pattern. There are a few

minor variations here and there, but this is the gist of it. Please feel free to make changes to this and repost.
