Thanks, Monica.  You will love your Blue Lion, I am sure. Remember that it has a floating bridge, so you may have to adjust it to get the intonation right.

No questions here, Noah. "The Ash Grove" is a traditional Welsh melody that has been put to words many times.  Check out the Wikipedia entry on the tune .

Sothere are no questions I'm going to put this in my playlist of church songs because it is the same tune as Let All Things Now Living.

Thanks, Patty.  All modesty aside, I like this arrangement, too. It is simple enough to keep the melody in the forefront with just enough embellishment to be interesting.

I had this tune up earlier but accidentally deleted it when playing around on our new site here.  Woops!


I am playing a Blue Lion IC.  The arrangement is basically what I remember from a guitar version by Norman Blake that I used to listen to obsessively a couple of decades ago.
