A Very Beautiful Melody by John Renbourn

Here is a beautiful tune played by John Renbourn, and titled 'The South Wind'.

It's a haunting melody, and played with much feeling by Mr. Renbourn. The tone of his guitar is gorgeous!

David, this video was wonderful and I really enjoyed it. His tone was great and so was the emotion he played with. I watched this a couple of times. I have an LP called the Lady and the Unicorn which I hadn't listened to in years and played that, too...and enjoyed it for the first time in a long time. Thanks for posting this link.

That's a great arrangement of that old chestnut, and played beautifully. I've played the John Pell (1/4 of the First Nashville Guitar Quartet) arrangement in Drop D tuning for a while now (Fingerstyle Guitar #47), and though it's really nice, you can't beat the fullness of those DADGAD arrangements for the Celtic stuff.

This guy's arrangement is really nice and wonderfully played too. His name is Edward Hamlin. http://www.edwardhamlin.com/Edward_Haml ... amlin.html
