Play an Irish Classic
"Danny Boy" is one of those rare songs that transcends the tradition/pop genres, with its sentimentality and anthem-like qualities. It's probably Ireland's most famous song. The words were written early in the 20th Century and were set to a much older tune, "The Londonderry Air" (or as the Clancy Brothers used to call it, "The London Derriere."
This instrumental version is in Dropped D tuning and should not be difficult for intermediate fingerstyle players. It may take a few viewings but I'm sure you'll be able to figure it out. Please note that after the spoken introduction I placed my capo at the 2nd fret. This gives it a different tonality and also makes it a little easier to play.
You can make this very simple or add some of the licks that I like to throw in. I can't help it, but under my fingers it gets a little bluesy. Do what you want with it and make it your own. Please let us know how you like this.
