I've been trying to play this song for years and finally I think that it is beginning to sound OK.

Thanks for making me aware of this hymn; I found a sung version here which I needed because I wasn't aware of this song. Very similar melody to Lord of the Dance (Sydney Carter) but I guess this is older.
The style of playing you're using would also work with many O'Carolan tunes.

Thanks Chris. I like O'Carolan a lot. I can knock out one or two of his simpler tunes, perhaps I'll try to polish them up a bit and post them.
