1 I'am gathering a few bits and pieces to take away on me holliers to
learn and the song "A Noblemans Wedding" is one of them. This appears on
the album "The Red Crow" by Altan.
I have tried several times to figure out the chord's / tuning the
guitarist/mandola players are using to back the vocals. Would any of you
folks know which tuning and/or chords are being used? Even the tuning
would be a start ! I have tried standard and DADGAD and a little bit of
Open C......but it does'nt seem close ......
2 Martin Wynne I love the two tunes Martin Wynnes and M.W. No2,
Does anyone know anything about this man? Did he write them and/or any
more? The tune the Bothy Band played with "The Longford Tinker" is
superb ! Discoverd Treasure ! and I would like to know something about
the man who wrote it.
