This is my romantic version of a lovely Gaelic melody. I say "Gaelic" since this will hopefully cover both Scottish or Irish Claims 0f origin. There are other guitar arrangements of this piece which are very different to mine but this is after all a love ballad and so I make no apology for this perhaps overtly romantic arrangement. The Bass pp. indications are meant to be an echo and that is why they are so indicated. All the harmonics are natural and therefore easy to play .,the "G" 0n 3.String 5th fret (Bar 38.) is not always clear on some guitars ---at the risk of being patronising I can say that plucking upwards with nail only more towards the bridge and being dead on the fretwire often helps here. The natural Bass notes below the harmonics obviously must be played pp.If difficult then just play the passage without harmonics. I indicated harmonics here since it is a nice contrast to the following passage which is on the bass strings.
I have just noticed that I have left out some fingering so Iv'e edited to include this. My apologies to the 6.members who have already downloaded'

Chopin used to sleep with wooden wedges between his fingers to increase their span--now there's a thought !
