Product Notes

Each year Leinweber does a special Christmas CD for both personal and professional reasons. This year, as a novelty, a collection of solo carol arrangements were performed on the Yamaha JR-1, a "Student" Guitar, thus the name 'A Toy Guitar for Christmas.' This 'toy' guitar has been kicked around the Leinweber home for over ten years -- having received little of the care or attention bestowed on the 'better' instruments owned by the family. It sill has it's original strings from the Yamaha factory, worn and dirty from years of casual evening playing on a sofa or an easy-chair. Many dings and scratches have marred the finish on the little guitar, along with evidence of mistreatment by the family dog. Nonetheless, the JR1 is surprisingly playable for a 100$, half-size guitar designed for children. For such a little, inexpensive instrument, the guitar has fine intonation and action, a testament to the superior nature of manufactured guitars in this modern-era. It's toy-like, folksy quality gave the carols a kind of humility and authenticity that seems suited for Christmas. All the carols are performed fingerstyle. There are no overdubs of second guitars, or splicing; all the carols were recorded at Johnson Brother's Recording Studio in Covington, most being first or second takes. The arrangements and playing are simple, but hopefully evoke a proper holiday mood. Play 'A Toy Guitar for Christmas' in the evening with your holiday lights on. It will definitely put you in a Christmas mood. The disc hopefully reminds listeners of the true meaning of Christmas. If you were raised in a Christmas home and love the old Christmas Carols, you will love this CD. A Toy Guitar For Christmas also includes three original songs as bonus tracks. Along with recording version of familiar carols each year for friends, family and others, Leinweber also writes an original Christmas Carol each Christmas. This year's effort is the comedy zinger 'Zombie Christmas: A Father's Holiday Lament.' This CD includes three bonus tracks, including the brand new 'Zombie Christmas,' as well as two other original tunes, 'Meet Me In the Morning,' and 'Christmas Snow.
