Measure #5: “5X” - means to play the repeated section (measure 5 - 23) 5 times
Measure #12: “Refrain” - When a song has several verses the refrain is a section of the song that is repeated the same way each time the song is repeated. The “Refrain” and the “Chorus” of a song are the same thing.
Solo Opportunities: Because “the Holly and the Ivy” is repeated 5 times, a different soloist(one person) could play the verse each time and then everyone in the band could play the refrain.
