Hi,

Here is the link to Sheebeg an Sheemore (1.6 Mb MP3), the famous O'Carolan composition.
It is played in C by my brother (on guitar) and me on a 30 button G/C concertina. This one is normally payed in D, but at this moment I have not the level to play it smoothly in D on the G/C concertina.

As there are no accidentals involved, this tune is very well suited for a 20 button G/C concertina.

Questions and comments are very welcome!

Henk

Thanks Morgana for your reaction.

The arrangement was inspired by the playing of this tune by the guitarplayer Dave Evans. It's in the book "Anthology of O'Carolan Music (including a great CD!) by Stefan Grossman & John Renbourn, published by Mel Bay Publications (ISBN 0-7866-3474-X). This is really a great book! I received it as a preaent from Joachim Delp and I'm still very thankfull for this musical treasure.

Now, to make this forum work, I invite you to make a recording of your playing and place a link in this forum. I am (maybe we all are) curious to hear playing.

When you need technical assistance you can contact me directly.

Henk

My band can never keep a straight face playing it as they know the tune as "She begs for more"

Around here the tune seems to be mandatory for weddings, and is generally known by that name.
