    This is a very simple melodic arrangement of this classic tune Frosty the Snowman. Use the lick switcher if you need a little more excitement and challenge. Don't forget, that how you play a simple melody can add a lot of excitement if you use other elements of music besides the notes-dynamics, tone, and articulation.
