Hi all, has anyone tabbed out Ireland's Green Shore in clawhammer style? From what I can tell, most folks will play it in A-modal. Thanks in advance for any help. BP

Is there a version you're partial to? Sarah Jarosz plays it in A modal.

Lukas Poole plays it in G modal.

They're versions handle the tune a bit differently at firstb hearing, it seems. What is your target>

David, thank you very much for your response, I appreciate it.

I do like Lukas Poole's playing a lot, however, my ear prefers the version that Sara Jarosz is playing, it seems to be less "notey", if that's even a word. One concern is that she looks to be playing a 6-string versus a 5-string, I'm not sure if that 6th string could cause problems in tabbing. As always, thanks for any help you are willing to provide.
