 PERFORMANCE NOTES______________________________________________________

 Before learning this tremolo variation of Silent Night, I recommend
 learning the first version, or at least refer to the chords in the
 other version as I did not include chords above the Tab to keep it
 from getting too busy. Both versions use the same chord forms.

 The thumb plays all the arrpegios while the other three fingers play
 the constant tremolo above.

 The accents ">" above the notes indicate the melody notes. 
 Although the Tab looks like this. 
  |               It is actually played like this.
