Here's my chorded DAA rendition of Aura Lea. The song was published right around the beginning of the war, and was popular on both sides. In the 1950s, a modified arrangement of the tune got a new set of lyrics and became Elvis Presley's "Love Me Tender."

Because of the somewhat complex chord progression, I find that the song doesn't seem to work well as a drone style piece. How about you? Anyone out there making it work old-school? Other tunings? Am I just being to picky?
