Notes: Here is a tune I have played since a child on the recorder, and now other instruments. Here it is for Irish tuned Tenor/Plectrum. The stretch for some on the plectrum may be bothersome.

Notes: This is a tune written by Turlough O'Carolan. Sounds nice on a banjo, but I prefer to use a Tenor guitar tuned Irish GDae. This recording is of a converted Flat top 6 string guitar to Tenor. I have 2 PDF files up: 1 in 2/4 and one I transcribed into 4/4.
Hope you enjoy

Notes: Here is that recording I promised in banjo. A friend of mine came over, so he played guitar. He decided on a
simple background sound.

Notes: Here is a tune I picked up in the 1970's. I first heard it by the Chieftains.
The song is written by some one named Paddy Moloney, supposedly for
a friend's wedding, who's name is Garech.
My playing may be a bit off here on the sound file (also on guitar), my apologies.
The transcript is from me playing a phrase and then notating it down on paper and then setting it up in Guitar Pro 6.

Hope you enjoy it;

Notes: This is a song/tune I fell for a long, long time ago. Generally I play it on fiddle, but had to try it out on Tenor banjo. I really like it on the converted flat top 6 string guitar to Tenor. Hope you enjoy.

Star of County Down

Genre: Fiddle/Celtic/Irish  Style: 4-String (Tenor/Plectrum)  Key: Bm  Tuning: Tenor Irish (GDAE)  Difficulty: Intermediate

Notes: Here is a tune that has stuck with me for over ten years now, and is a staple for me when I play at Old folks homes and such. On the fiddle I treat it as a ballad style, and on the Tenor Banjo more of a dance tune. I have heard many Irish bands play this tune at "sub-light speed", and then again have heard fiddlers play it quite slowly and sweetly. Hope you enjoy AJ
