A beautiful old Scottish lament that was crying out to be arranged for solo guitar and one that was suggested to me by my former student Mike Dawes. After searching for a suitable tuning I put the guitar into open G minor (DGDGBflatD) and this arrangement came together very quickly. A slightly different arrangement of this can be found in my book/CD ‘The Tradition.’
