Released in 1948, "Sleigh Ride" has become part of every Christmas music list since. It's a great piece for beginners, as whilst the notes are quite easy, the challenge is about getting up to the right speed - good luck :)

Did you know? This has been covered by Bing Crosby, The Ronettes, The Carpenters, Ella Fitzgerald, Amy Grant, Pentatonix and more!
