Blind Whitebread Perry Plays

So my latest attempt to learn a fingerstyle guitar piece. This one is El McMeen's arrangement of the traditional tune "The Water is Wide." Full of clicks and pops and squeaks and all, and a couple of flubs, but a work-in-progress. I really like the piece, and with some more practice, may some day be able to do it justice. It's in Dropped-C tuning (like Dropped-D, but everything tuned down a full step, to CGCFAD.

Want to hear it, click here, then on the hi-fi button under the title.

That's pretty good playin! I quite like the piece as well, I can see why you want to master it.

Now let's hear "Don't Stop Believing"!

(sorry, sorry, sorry, couldn't resist.)
