I have been thinking for a while that Bedlam Boys would work really well with a plucked banjo accompaniment.

Kendall says he can't work out the cords. Can anyone out there help?

Dm and C, or Em and D? I'm assuming the Steeleye Span/Dark Ship in the forest John & Tony version of the tune by Nic Jones and Dave Moran? Those are the one's I use. When in doubt play the minor.

Jacqui

I've a scan of the chords and dots from my homemade fake book. I tried to PM you but "member not found" showed up. What's with that, I wonder?

The Bedlam Boys version with which I am familliar is a modal tune employing the Dorian mode; thus, it has no "chords" per se... it may be accompanied on 5-string banjo with use of the following tuning:
gDGCD. An example may be found on an eafrly steeleye span recording.
