I use this lovely and well-known O’Carolan piece to demonstrate: (1) the power of using simple two note chords in rising and falling bass lines; (2) how to separate in physical distance harmony from melody; (3) how to incorporate a wide variety of arranging ideas in 3/4 time; and (4) how to develop simple and more complex variations. 

Recorded on Daybreak

It's like having private mini-tutorials from Ken that you can watch over and over!

NOTE: Even if you already own the sheet music, your purchase ensures that you receive the latest updated versions, and future additions to new arranging ideas, backups and so forth as Ken experiments and develops his playing of the tune.

Thank you for your support - I hope you enjoy the tune! Please do not share your purchased music and videos.
