17 Favourite Folksongs for Flute and Classical Guitar (Notation and TAB)

A collection of favourite tunes for flute or other C melody instrument with a properly written guitar part! (Yes folks, not just chord symbols, but one my teacher would have happily let me play! LOL…) This is the case for most songs which have an accompaniment to develop dexterity in the right hand, but beginner arrangements of the Drunken Sailor and For Auld Lang Syne crept in and are much, much easier. Please listen to the MP3 for a rough idea… Although these are intended for an educational context(hence note name noteheads) they should be playable in any informal gathering where folk music is enjoyed. A glossy version of this collection is available in book form on the following link!



1.The Drunken Sailor 2.The Water Is Wide 3.The Keys of Canterbury 4.Carrickfergus 5.For Auld Lang Syne 6.Romanza 7.Fhear A Bhata 8.Spanish Ladies 9.MacPherson�s Lament 10.The Cutty Wren Song 11.Volga Boat Song 12.A Bunch of Thyme 13.The Bluebells of Scotland 14.Now the Green Blade Rises 15.Lisa Lan 16.Hava Nagila 17.The Mountains of Mourne

Which method of viewing music should I use?

Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:


seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.


Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.

If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.
