From: bhutchinson@cix.compulink.co.uk ("Barry Hutchinson")

This is a lovely Irish tune, very closely akin to the tune of "On Raglan 
Road" as sung by Van Morrison with the Chieftains on "Irish Heartbeat" - 
actually a modern poem by P. J. Kavanagh set to a traditional air whose 
title I've forgotten ("The Dawning of the Day", perhaps?).

The first half of this is pretty well note-for-note identical to Martin 
Simpson's arrangement on "Leaves of Life", and as per the TAB that comes 
with the album. However, he plays it on a baritone guitar - this sounds 
achingly beautiful and sonorous, but given the higher pitch of the 
standard guitar, I thought it could use a bit more of the lower register, 
so I put together a simple arrangement one octave below. This alternates 
nicely with the higher part, and gives some pleasing tonal contrast, 
especially if the right-hand attack alternates between 'over the sound 
hole' and 'down by the bridge'.

Any comments would be welcome.

Regards,

Barry
