Si Bheag, Si Mhor by Carol M. 8 Months, 2 Weeks ago  
Hi Friends!!
I hope I am posting this in the right spot- I finally got a half decent video of this Pete Huttlinger arrangement of Turlough O'Carolyn's old Celtic tune, Si Bheag, Si Mhor, and I wanted to share it with you. It's in DADGAD, on my GSMini w/Elixir Lights. And I have no clue what the title means, ha!!

BTW I am STILL in withdrawal from IGC 2017. I can't wait for next time, hoping to get the vacation time approved for 2018
Hope to see y'all next summer

You make DADGAD sound really beautiful Carol, great job!

Sure hope you can get the time off, because i would love for you to join us again next year. I'm already looking forward as well.

Many thanks for sharing your playing again!

Carol

Great tune, playing to aspire to

Thanks for sharing your video.

Nice guitar and sound.

I looked the tune up and eventually found the following page of interest.

Click This Link : Sí bheag Sí mhor

Dermot.



Sí Bheag, Sí Mhor", the background tune, was the first song written by Turlough O'Carolan (1670 - 1738). The gist of the song is that a great contention arose between the rival queens (of Shebeg and Shemore). They first engage in verbal warfare, each claiming superiority over the other. Then ensues a battle between their partisans, fought on the plain between Shebeg and Shemore, the like of which has not been seen since Troy. Finally a truce is called, in view of the hostile approach of the faerie hosts of two neighbouring hills and the two sides unite in face of the common danger."




And let us all stand together !

Bringing the topic back to your performance, this is yet another gem in my book from you Carol. You are such an inspiration to me.
