Gentle Carols

Hey All,

I'm usually the LAST person to rush into the holiday, as I revel in my scroogeness, but I have to share with you a fantastic recording that will help ease you into the holiday spirit.

Roger Humphrey is a fantastic classical guitarist as well as a good pal of mine. He has just released a new holiday themed album called Gentle Carols where he does a classical guitar version of many familiar Holiday favorites. You can check out his music for free at his website: and if you like what you hear, buy the album! They make great gifts too for all those on your list that, like me, need a little help getting into the holiday spirit!

All Things Possible,

    Hi Tanya and everyone,
    Happy Thanksgiving to all!

    Gentle Carols is beautiful, and I hope to give it to our son, who tarted to learn classic guitar and maybe it will inspire him to pick it up again. I love the gentleness of the music...a time to listen and enjoy a little quiet time hroughout the holidays.

    Best wishes, Roger, if you are reading Chris' forum, and All Things Beautiful! Sue

    Guess I can't spell:) He started to learn classic guitar, and got pretty good. If a classical guitar is the same as a Spanish guitar (I know there are guitarists reading this whom I know, so you can chime in anytime:) he was playing Spanish music that I loved. Hope some of you music people will post...that would be very cool:)

    Tim, hope you are doing well after the loss of your friend, hope the dog agility is going great, too. And so far, so good, on the weather from your direction.

    Dave, best wishes on your job and also the Detroit 187 episodes.

    Everyone across the pond, miss you here, and also our intrepid host (an injection of ATP would work wonders for us all:)"And that's all I have to say about that" -- favorite movie line....Sue

    Happy Thanksgiving, Tanya and everyone. Wow, just two forum friends stateside holding the fort here, it seems. Blessings to all.

    Tim, I think I heard the big "I" word .... you know, that pink stuff on the radar. May we all be safe, sound and healthy this weekend. Our family is a little far apart, as our son is off to sunny (is it, Chris?) California to spend time with his sister and brother-in-law. Closer to Chris than to me;) So glad he could get the time off to go. Be well and think ATB/P...Sue

    I would like to echo Tanya's post by wishing everyone a Happy Thanksgiving. So much to be thankful for and it is easy to take things for granted. Hope everyone has a safe holiday.

    Well, Thanksgiving is past and we are now into the Christmas holiday season (and Hanukkah starts in just a couple days too). I hope that our statesside friends have survived the "Black Friday" shopping madness - if they went - and that everyone else is getting ready for the holidays. Roger's musice certainly should put you in the mood!

    I for one kicked off my holiday season by going to the movies and I can heartily recommend "Harry Potter 7, part 1," "Tangled," and "Megamind." With "Tangled" I just have to say that Disney has done it again and I'm sorry to see that it may be their last "fairy tale" based movie for a while at least. "Megamind" was good fun especially if you like the super-hero genre, and "Potter" was probably the best of the series IMHO - at least until part 2 comes out.

    Stay warm everyone!

    Hello everyone,
    So good to have the familiar voices here:) Can it really be looking a lot like Christmas?:)
    Well, all those movies were on when we took my sister out on Thanksgiving Day (since our kids were celebrating in that faraway land of California). We chose to see "Unstoppable" and it was the longest 100 minutes of my life, I have to say. If you want unstoppable action, you'd enjoy. A thought-provoking film. Dave, good to know you liked those films. What else do you recommend from the Christmas flicks? Hope to see at least a couple this season...
    Yes, we along the snow belt had better be warm and ready...keep us posted, Tim. Good to hear from you Jaschenka and Alex and Tanya:) I can feel the warmth of the forum family hugs already:) ATB! Sue

    Glad to hear from so many familar voices.

    Sue as always you make me smile.

    Good to hear from you Tim, hope you are doing well.

    Jasckenka, thank you for your Thanksgiving wishes even though it's not your holiday.

    Alex, hope you had a wonderful holiday.

    Dave I agree with you about Potter. Have not seen the others, but I love superheros, or any man in tights. So any tights in your upcoming shows?

    And of course Chris, wishing you a fabulous holiday season.
