Default Cliffs Of Moher

Trad Irish with mandolins and guitars. The instrument that sounds like a cheesy keyboard played with one finger is actually an electric mandolin.
The Cliffs are on the west coast of Ireland and were the hiding place of a Horcrux.

I really enjoyed that. This is one of the tunes that I've intended to learn on flatpick guitar, but all the Irish fiddlers I've listened to play it so fast that my ear cannot pick up the melody. This helps a lot. I particularly like the descending run in the B part, which you can hear distinctly in this presentation. Great job!!!

Thanks for listening. This tune would have sounded better faster, but I played as fast as I could, and a bit more.

Thank you for reminding me of this beautiful place, The cliffs are very beautiful especially at sunset and that we can see in the distance looming the Aran Islands

Thanks for listening - I'm sorry to say that I've never been on your side of the Atlantic, but maybe I'll visit the Cliffs some day.
