This classic Christmas piece was originally one that I arranged for the Classical Guitar, but have since adapted it for fingerstyle guitar. Please note that the same song is called Greensleeves and can be played very easily year around.
Fingerstyle Christmas Guitar: Mark Hanson is a great fingerstyle guitarist and this book of Christmas Songs demonstrates that fact. If you are just starting out with fingerstyle guitar this book may be a little deep for you. There are 12 songs and they are divided into 4 beginner tunes, 4 intermediate and 4 advanced. All are richly transcribed and you definitely learn a lot from this book!
Twelve beautiful new arrangements for solo acoustic guitar.

What Child is This PartA Tab: The first half of What Child is This is a very straight forward arrangement that I have transcribed for you. As I mentioned in the intro, I originally played this on the Classical Guitar, but it sounds really great on the Acoustic Guitar, played in fingerstyle fashion too.
Here is the link to Part A: What Child is This PartA Tab:
What Child is This PartA PartB Tab: The second part of What Child is this is the Chorus of the song. Again, it is a very straight-forward arrangement. While the PartA or the Verse is played mostly in A Minor, the PartB or the Chorus dips briefly into the Major key of C for a bit and then reverts back to the Relative key of A Minor.
As with the PartA, try to roll you chords a bit to allow the notes to sound a bit more individually, rather than pinched.
