Sleigh Ride                             Leroy Anderson
Based on Amy Grants version: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q4r0gR90OOI
Arrangement by Ben Price (San Antonio)

This is a song just about everyone loves, especially musicians. However, it has 
lots of changes and relies heavily on the melody, which throws rhythm guitar 
players off. Especially challenging is the Bridge. Listen to the Amy Grant version 
and try to play along. It won’t be long before you’ll be on that sleigh ride.
