Happy St Patrick’s Day
I thought this would be a fitting song for St. Patrick’s Day as it was written by one of Ireland’s most Famous Composer’s: Turlough O’ Carolan!

It is a lot of fun to play on guitar! I arranged to be play in the 7th position (1st finger 7th fret) for a couple of reasons.
#1 I like rich full tones; the thicker the string the fuller the guitar tone. So by playing it on higher frets I am forced to use the thicker strings.
#2. I wanted to play in a single position without needing to shift my left hand to much.
#3. I wanted to practice a 3 notes per string scale (or finger pattern).
So this song is also a great way to practice those often neglected notes up higher on the fretboard.
