Made this for the GW-EN Wintersday Song Competition (GW lyrics to a holiday tune), but the lyrics are all GW2, so I figured I'd throw it up here. I like Greensleeves, so I decided I'd do What Child Is This?, but then I looked at the actual lyrics and saw all those rhymes and syllable counts, and it ended up being more work than I expected to get the lyrics to work out. Still, it was fun. Enjoy!

I'm not throwing this up for votes or anything like that. I was just waiting for the voting to begin because nobody else was making their submissions public, so I figured I'd hold off until they were all public on the GW-EN website before linking mine anywhere.

Very creative to be able to throw GW lyrics in sync with the song's rhythm.

I made a "12 days of Wintersday" song 3 Wintersdays ago and even recorded myself singing it, but I sing worse than you so it never saw the light of day.

Wow you actually really get into it. You have a good singing voice too. What instrument did you play?

I really like the choice of song btw :P Good job!

Thanks for the kind words!

Rolin: Glad you liked the lyrics. Not too late to go post the song in the thread just for fun! Mesmer In This Hall has better singing than everyone else anyway. :P

Helikaon: Just a guitar, played acoustically into a mic. It's an old archtop guitar from the 30s, made for playing big band rhythm guitar. That's why it sounds different from normal acoustic guitars. Glad you liked the singing (and choice of song)!
