I have been cleaning up my workshop and lo and behold I found an old 6 string guitar I converted to tenor.  Kept the neck as is, just re-spaced the nut and altered the tail piece to accommodate the new spacing. Never did close up the holes in the head stock - I guess I should for appearances sake-naaa.

started "noodling" around and made this recording for you.  Enjoy!!!

Blind Mary

blessings to ya all;

Hi Michael;

I am the same way with this tune.  It was you posting that inspired me to play it again.

You just can't beat an O'Carolan tune, can  you?

Thanks for the encouragement.

You know, I was first introduced to this tune by a local duo 30 years ago. Guitar and Recorder. I have played it myself ever since. It has to be one of the most deeply moving pieces of music I know, and I can't explain why for the life of me!


A nice version you have there Albert, I enjoyed that very much. Come and join us on live chat when you have a moment. I reckon we could talk Carolan and Swedish instruments all night!

Thanks Connie Rae. I was surprised at how the recording came out actually. After hearing Blind Mary on those Swedish instruments I was inspired to try it out, as this is one of my favorite O'Carolan tunes.

This arrangement is one I have done for over 20 yrs when ever I played the tenor guitar.

Beautiful guitar Albert.  Thanks for sharing - looking forward to hearing more from you!
