advanced Brighton Park  standard tuning

Here's a sneak peek at my new album.  It's a student version of the old traditional English song called "Brighton Park", which was, like many other pieces, stolen by the American colonists.  It was renamed "The Girl I Left Behind Me" and later was the theme song of General Custer.
   In my usual way I play the A theme in two different octaves and try to take full advantage of the fingerboard.  Notice that the third measure of line 2 and 6 are the same and the second measure of line 3, 4, and 6 are very similar.
    This is a very challenging, yet rewarding piece of music.  There are some big stretches for the left hand in the first measure of line 3 and 4.  Use the left hand fingering I've indicated in the tab.  Also take your time to articulate all the hammer-ons and pull-offs so they sound clear and not muddied.  There's a lot of counterpoint and harmonies going on in this piece.  Take your time and listen to the MP3's. Good Luck!!
