I've been listening a lot to Pat Metheny and Jim Hall's wonderful duo recording of this standard. Here's a solo version of me improvising on it, on a Deering Crossfire.

A Medley of two lovely haunting Irish Tunes. The first is played an octave up using bass notes on the third and fourth strings in imitation of a harp, and the second tune is played down the neck in 'melodic' style. Played on a Deering Crossfire.

A nice brooding set of hornpipes I learned from the album 'If the Cap Fits' by the wonderful Irish fiddler Kevin Burke. The first is in G Minor, the second in A Minor. (Caislean an Oir is the Irish for 'The Golden Castle')

Here's a tune I learned off the Transatlantic Sessions by a piper/flute player by the name of Fred Morrsion I believe. I got the chord changes from Donal Lunny's wonderful bouzouki playing on the piece. Jerry Douglas plays some mean dobro on it as well!

Just some improvisation in and around E Minor. I was listening to 'Prickly Pear' off the new Flecktones record today and I think a bit of it snook into my playing! On a Deering Crossfire.

A couple of nice jigs that go well together. I got the first one off a Gerry 'Banjo' O Connor recordings. He capos on the first fret and I did likewise.
