What are you looking for? PM me... I have all kinds of it...

and what I don't have, is usually very easy to figure out...

He's not a real 'flash' guitar player...

Kellaghan's a sneaky bugger; must be why I like him so much. The chord pattern for "Fires of Calais" is your basic 'shoo-wap' turnaround; e.g:
G /Em /C /D
but of course in DADGAD tuning, it voices quite different.

Keelaghan is a master of deceptive simplicity.

Never really found much all that deceptive about him... fairly straigh forward... He once patted me on the knee in a very patronizing manner when, while having a pint with him, I thanked him for helping do wonderful things for my playing, learning from his CDs...

The chrods as I recall 'em for Fires, in DADGAD were D... F#m... G... A...

Mind you it's been a long time since I played it...

I've worked out the chords to "Cold Missouri Shore" in standard tuning. I play it with Capo V in C (G fingering). The only real surprise in there is the C/F (G/C) chord at the end of the chorus.

"is the C/F (G/C) chord at the end of the chorus."

Ya... but what a nice surprise it is eh!

"Cold Missouri Water"... It's a rare gig goes by, I don't play it...
