Lyrics
Nu tändas tusen juleljus
på jordens mörka rund,
och tusen, tusen stråla ock
på himlens djupblå grund.

Och över stad och land i kväll
går julens glada bud,
att född är Herren Jesus Krist,
vår Frälsare och Gud.

Du stjärna över Betlehem,
o, låt ditt milda ljus
få lysa in med hopp och frid
i varje hem och hus!

I varje hjärta armt och mörkt
sänd du en stråle blid,
en stråle av Guds kärleks ljus
i signad juletid!

You have a lovely light touch on this, Johannes. The two guitars fit together perfectly. Recording very clean and resonant. What a delight this is!

This is lovely Johannes. I love finger style guitar, and this hymn takes on a new character in this arrangement while still keeping the basic beauty of the melody (as in Mysti's version you reference). There is a lightness to your style that makes the notes uplifting as the fingers leave each string.


All the best for Christmas,
Doug

Masterful...
..your touch control and tonal positioning (closer to hole/closer to bridge). Not to mention the trills/flicks .. what variety and tender interpretation of this Swedish classic. Always a great pleasure to hear you Johannes. God Jul!

Guitar player since 11. Can't play other instruments than acoustic guitars, well maybe aside from instruments that are tuned the same way; like ukulele or bass guitar. In younger years I took inspiration from classical guitar, American acoustic... [see more]
