I put a lot of thought into the arrangement of this traditional song before it was ready to record. The first verse pays tribute to the outstanding versions of Davy Graham and Bert Jansch. Verse two changes to a major key countermelody. After a connecting bridge, the third verse moves to a high, sparse variation that represents a ghostly visitation from the deceased young lover.
I play She Moved Through The Fair in dropped D tuning, though it is in the key of G. This recording is a single complete take with no edits, exactly as I perform it in concert. – Phil Campbell (The San Francisco Hobbyhorse)
South African guitarist Tony Cox plays this delightful acoustic instrumental version of a popular song from his country.
This tune, Jabulani, which in Zulu means ‘rejoice’, became a pop hit in the 70’s on South African radio and now, decades later is a beloved old classic. This is the first time to my knowledge the song has ever been played as a fingerstyle guitar piece…enjoy! – Tony Cox
You can hear Jabulani from his album Padkos on the Radio Guitar station.
Annie and I both love Greensleeves and worked out an arrangement with vocals for our duo, The San Francisco Hobbyhorse. But I liked a lot of the ideas we came up with – chord voicing, time signature changes and a middle section that departs from the traditional melody. So I incorporated these ideas into a solo guitar arrangement. I play it in standard EADGBE tuning. - Phil Campbell (Radio Guitar co-host and guitarist)
