Masterfully performing these slide guitar interpretations are some of the genre's best-known artists.

These sunny versions of Christmas classics like "Jingle Bell Rock" and "Winter Wonderland" don't necessarily evoke images of sleigh rides and bundled carolers, but they work well as an alternative to the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. A fun disc for those who would rather spend the season on the beach.
