Lesson 83. O’Carolan’s Receipt for Drinking

This tune is sometimes known as “Dr. John Stafford”.

The tune begins on a C chord. For the accompaniment Tony plays and holds a bass note and then, instead of a full chord, he plays the notes of a chord individually.

Tony mentions a lovely harp rendition by “SaulHarp2″ on YouTube.
