First arranged in 1980, this version updated with guitar tablature for those who find notation a challenge. (Notation score only also available for teachers who prefer their own fingerings). These four songs are originally from the Cecil Sharp folk song collection. The Drowned Lover, Lord Randal, Lady Maisry and Geordie. Guitar 1 explores a few higher positions of the neck, guitar 2 is quite simple although a couple of barre chords are necessary. The arrangement would suit two players of grade 2/3 ability and above.
