Subject: RE: Chord Req: Paddy's Lamentation
Apropos Paul Brady's piano version, I tried to use his version as a starting point for my approach to it on the guitar.
I only played it on stage for a short time, and nowadays I would have to sit down for a half an hour and re-familiarise myself with the progressions.
Mick Foley (that long time supporter of the Irish Trad scene in Scandinavia) recorded a gig I did in his pub in Copenhagen about 7 odd years ago, and 'Paddy's Lamentation On The Emerald Isle' got stuck in there along the line.
There's a few 'unforced errors' in this recording, so it's only a referance, really. The guitar is tuned DAFDAD, and you can download a 5MB file of it here
.... it's only a few ideas, thrown onto a fretboard...
