Default Lady Of The Valley (Clive Carroll) irish folk fingerstyle cover

Hi folks, this is my simple fingerstyle cover version of "Lady Of The Valley" - an instrumental folk melody written by the wonderful guitarist Clive Carroll. For me this title is one of the most beautiful Irish folk compositions of our time - a real masterpiece. I tried to capture the feeling that this song triggers in me when I hear it. I left out some notes and arranged my own "easy listening" version...

Have a nice weekend and greetings from Hamburg,

Jimmy :-)

It’s really very successful. Very pleasant. It is true that this is a particularly well written play.
Which tuning is that?
