Daoiri Farrell - The Galway Shawl

 Daoiri takes this classic song into a new dimension. So beautiful!

Some time ago I tabbed and posted the intro to the song. You can find it here:
https://irish-bouzouki.blogspot.com/2019/02/daoiri-farrell-on-rte-one.html

Now here are the chords for the song. Look at the video and try to play with him.


{t:The Galway Shawl}
{st:Daoiri Farrel Version}


[A] from intro
In Oran[D]more     [D/F#] [G]     in the County [A/C#]Galway
[G]Early, [D]early [D/C#] [D/B]   in the [D/A]month of [G]May [D5] [A]
I spied a [D]damsel, [D/F#] [G]s o fair and [A/C#]handsome  [G]
Her beauty it [D/A]stol[Dsus4/A]e my heart a[D]way 
 
{soc}
She wore no jewels, nor costly diamonds
No paint nor powder, no none at all
But she worn a bonnet with ribbons on it
And 'round her shoulders was the Galway shawl
{eoc}


We kept on walking she kept on talking
'Till her fathers cottage came in to view
Said she, 'Come in sir', and meet my father
And play, to please him, 'The Foggy Dew'

She sat me down beside the hearthstone
I could see her father he was six feet tall
And soon her mother, had the kettle singing
All I could think of, was the Galway shawl

{soc}
She worn no jewels, nor costly diamonds
No paint nor powder, no none at all
But she worn a bonnet with ribbons on it
And 'round her shoulders was the Galway shawl
{eoc}

I played, 'The Black Bird', 'The Stack of Barley'
'Rodney's Glory' and 'The Foggy Dew'
She sang each note like an Irish linnet
And tears weld in her eyes of blue

'Twas early, early, all in the morning
I hit the road for old Donegal
Said she, 'goodbye sir', she cried and kissed me
But my heart remain with the Galway shawl

{soc}
She worn no jewels, nor costly diamonds
No paint nor powder, no none at all
But she worn a bonnet with ribbons on it
And 'round her shoulders was the Galway shawl
{eoc}

Charles Monod - Vincent Fogarty: The Nightingale Jig in Am - Capo 7

Some Jigs played by Charles Monod on Concertina and Vincent Fogarty on a large Foley Bouzouki. I really love Vincent's accompaniment style.

 I tried to tab the second Jig: The Nightingale. It starts at 0:34. 

Here's the link to the tab:

First line in tab is melody, second line accompaniment. I got the melody from https://thesession.org/tunes/1868, but changed it at little in two bars.

Sam Hall - Tab Daoiri Farrell Style (hopefully ;-)

Inspired by Vince Jerrison's Video of "A bunch of Thyme" which I posted yesterday I tried to find another song in 4/4 on which to try some of these ideas. The first song I found was "Sam Hall". So this is what I came out with. Maybe I'll post a video at some time, have to practice first ;-)

You can download my tab here:

A Bunch Of Thyme - Vince Jerrison

The classic ballad "A Bunch Of Thyme" played by Vince Jerrison. You can definitely hear that he is a student of Daoiri Farrell. Lovely accompaniment!

 

Well, I tried to tab the accompaniment in tabledit. So here it is, as good as I was able to do it, hope it's helpful. Download link:

Just Leo - Folk Pop with Irish Bouzouki

A young musicion from the Netherlands plays pop/folk with his Thomann Bouzouki. You can listen to the album here:

https://justleo.bandcamp.com/album/just-leo?fbclid=IwAR0YShxw-4USC2kv5jH50kO4Yoq_-9X-LWyZ7vh2ueH_F8HTkHIkSpunoD0

He now has released a youtube video of him playing the song "That's Alright" from his album. The tab for the song is in the video so you can play along with him if you like. He uses some nice chords, by the way. And the album is really worth a listen.

Some of the chords he uses in this video (without capo):

x113 D#sus2
x002 Asus2 or Dsus2
x010 BbM(no5)D
x057 D5
x335 Fsus2 or Csus4/F

I found the chord names with the app: Reverse Chord Finder Pro on iPhone.
