Speaking of Gaelic, I'm in dire need of some tapes to
go along with the written lessons I have taken. I'm
not bad (still by no means good) at translating and
can write in Gaelic passably well, but I am still
atrocious at speaking it, because pronunciation guides
(written) are simply not working for me. Having no
real sense for learning languages does not help me in
Anyone know a place to get good tapes?
And as far as my next question goes, I think I'm
probably far out in left field, but here's the story.
My fiance has been looking for the guitar tablatures
to Irish songs such as those we hear in Kevin Barry's
pub every Saturday here in Savannah (for example,
"Red-Haired Mary," "Rambling Rover," and "Four Green
Fields") I keep telling him that I think the
variations we hear even between performers indicates
that for most of the songs, it's a play-by-ear sort of
thing with everybody adding or subtracting something
new to the melody, and therefore tablatures will be
next to impossible to find.
In my search, I have managed to find the lyrics to
every song we need the tablature for, but not a single
tablature to go with it. Any suggestions?
