O’Carolan on dobro.

O’Carolan on dobro.

A while back I got a few nice comments on my dobro playing and recommandations to a couple O’Carolan tunes. Here is Eleanor Plunkett with my buddy Juha in Fir Arda.

Yeah. I like a nice slide guitar. Very nice.
I think it might be richer if the accompaniment was played in a lower range; there are some instances where the picked melody and backing notes are similar but there is some dissonance as one is fixed (zouk) and the other (the dobro) is slid up to/down to. So maybe more seperation?

Re: O’Carolan on dobro.

That was nice. The whistle was great, too. I’ve actually never seen anybody play a dobro before. I guess I’ve heard one, but never seen one.

Re: O’Carolan on dobro.

The rural Dutch word for dobro is "hûle-orgel", which roughly translates as "weep-organ". I think that’s beautiful.

Very nicely played ;)

One of my favorite O’Carolan pieces - plenty more to choose from, please!
