And my first reaction was "wow - that opening measure is a direct copy of My Heart Will Go On from the movie Titanic"

I wonder if this traditional song had some influence on that movie theme.

Very beautiful, the artificial harmonics were very clear and well played. The arrangement is almost perfect, your timing is almost too good. I would suggest a little more relaxed approach - play a little behind the beat and let some of the phrases breathe a little more as is the tradition here in Ireland! But that is just a superficial recommendation. Overall your playing is extremely good. Really, really enjoyed it - a very well done indeed.
Steve

Or...lets see how good google is!

Очень красивая, искусственные гармоники были очень ясны и хорошо играл. Расположение почти идеально, ваш выбор времени почти слишком хорошо. Я хотел бы предложить немного более расслабленным подход - играть чуть позади в такт, и пусть некоторые из фраз дышать немного больше, поскольку традиция здесь в Ирландии! Но это только поверхностное рекомендация. Общая ваша игра очень хорошо. Действительно, очень понравилось - очень хорошо сделано действительно.

Very nicely played, Daria! After listening to both, I actually prefer the steel string sound more than the nylon...I think the dynamics are better. Thanks for sharing your wonderful talent here.

Beautiful playing on both guitars Daria. Like Bob, I favor the steel string. Very well done.

Daria, a wonderful arrangement, and your fingering and intonation are first rate. You've inspired me to download your tabs, though I don't play as well as you do. A tune that is somewhat similar and is one of my favorites is Eleanor Plunkett by O'Carolan.

Daria, your's is one of the better arrangements and performances I've heard of this song. I enjoyed it a lot. Timing was spot on and every note articulated well.
Thanks for sharing!
