Miss Murphy (Turlough O'Carolan, Ireland)

1 rating

Digging deeper into the O’Carolan well reveals many lesser known but beautiful gems. Miss Murphy’s should be at the top of the list. The A part is immediately captivating, accessible and satisfying. The B part is twisty and takes unexpected turns typical of O’Carolan necessitating a phrase by phrase digestion! Left hand lead allows us to add some nice bass lines. I present an accompaniment and lots of arranging ideas.

Here's What You Get:

$38 (Sheet music PLUS video lessons)

Sheet music for melody, backup, and arranging ideas. Ken talks through the tune, chord choices, hammering patterns, backups, embellishments, arranging, play-throughs, and more on his dulcimer (shot from above so that you can see what he's doing).

***Videos can be streamed, downloaded, or viewed in the Gumroad App on mobile devices. Watch your email for instructions after purchase***

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.

Recorded at Fenchurch Music Studio, Baltimore MD for the Fall 2018 Sandbridge Hammered Dulcimer Retreat
