    Default The Foggy Dew

    This is a somewhat unusual instrumental quartet arrangement of this famous Irish rebel song. Arranged by Jan Wolters for two recorders, guitar and bass:

    I've adapted the arrangement for a quartet of two mandolins, tenor guitar and mandocello.

    Mid-Missouri M-0W mandolin
    1915 Luigi Embergher mandolin
    Ozark tenor guitar
    Suzuki MC-815 mandocello

    Recorded raw straight onto the iPad, which I think fits the style the tune/song is played in.

    Arr Dominique Rivičre

    The OM is in effect tuned down from the standard GDAE to F# C# Bb C# and a capo is placed on the first fret, in order to a) reduce the scale length by about an inch (21” ish to 20” ish) to make it easier for me to play in terms of reach, and b) to get the GDAD tuning used on Irish Bouzoukis.

    Ps. Martin, I really enjoyed your version…which I hadn’t come across until searching to upload my video on the MC.
