O’Carolan’s Receipt for guitar

Well, i wanted to try and post something once a week, but it may end up being more than that.  Notating these full arrangements takes a while sometimes.

So here is a full arrangement of the tune O’Carolans’s Receipt.   I arranged it a few years back.  Its in G and i think it contains a few nice Orkney-isms, including some harp style runs and alternating open strings with notes up the neck.

I’ve notated it as playing the A part twice, and the B part twice.  That is once through the piece, and i usually play it twice.

I’m still getting a handle on this notation software.  Future arrangements should be better, i need to figure out how to specify certain left hand fingerings.

In the audio recording i repeat the whole piece more than once, but its close enough that you should be able to get the idea from it and the notation.
