Frosty the Snowman song is nice Plankton!
Carol Of the bells was nice too, you're a good musician bro!
Like how the video told me what song it's on too...

Thanks broceph.

Took me a while to get that Sleigh going across the sky timed right in the animation, but the text color change was a simple and effective addition.

Also, the figure in the sleigh is a woman in a bikini and the reindeer are actually goats.

Well done as ever, Plankton. Nice to hear the reprise of "Carol of the Bells" - love your tone on that especially (you never use a pick, correct?). "Happy Xmas (War Is Over)" is beautiful too - the recording of John at the beginning is a nice tribute. I got a bit choked up at the chorus!

I use picks about 90% of the time and have somewhat of a hybrid style these days but I did use one for that. I went through a period when I was gigging a lot where I ditched using them, but that was quite a few years ago. The tone you're hearing is from my PRS neck pickup and a light gain on my Vox Tonelab ST with some Boss DD3 delay. That Vox unit has an onboard tube that gets some really buttery tones.

That bit on HX was from this recording:

Aww, I guess adding those bells to accent the chord punches worked better then I expected. I did too after it was all said and done and I sat and let it flow.

I really do appreciate the listen and comments. A lot of things go unnoticed these days.

Thanks again!

Ok, so I made a full album out of my Christmas tunes that I've pieced together over the years. I even reworked Carol Of The Bells into something better than it was, and of course included one of the new ones from this year, but I'll be making a sequel to this sometime down the road so anything else I make from this point out will go into that production. Also, I 'repurposed' (lol) some of the 3D content from last year for the animation in the this one.

Enjoy, and I hope everyone is simply having a wonderful Christmas time.

Btw, there's a bit of an easter egg in ^that^ video. You can see Santa and his sleigh go by every 10 seconds or so. It's a little dark and easy to miss unless you're looking for it.
