This is the full fingerstyle guitar lesson for I Believe in Father Christmas and is part of my 24 Fingerstyle Songs of Christmas series.
This song was released in 1975 and written by Greg Lake and Peter Sinfield. Originally it wasn’t intended to be a Christmas song as Lake was writing more about how Christmas had become so commercialised. However, it quickly cemented itself as a Christmas classic and is now a recurring song played on the radio each December. Regardless, it’s a lot of fun to play!
