    This is a recording I've posted over in the Song-A-Week group, but that may be of interest to tenor guitarists as it's the primary instrument in my arrangement. The tune is Bridget Cruise, a Turlough Carolan tune which exists in four different settings. I start on the third air, go to the second and then reprise the third to finish.

    This is based on a Mel Bay arrangement for hammered dulcimer by Maggie Sansone (Link), although I have rejigged it somewhat.

    I start out on tenor guitar with a mandocello bassline, with the tenor guitar switching to harmony when the mandolin comes in for the middle section. The tenor guitar takes the tune again for the final repeat of the third air.
