GUEST,Some bloke Farewell Farewell (Richard Thompson & Fairport) (39) RE: Farewell Farewell (Richard Thompson & Fairport) 09 Oct 17


I used to sing Farewell Farewell. I still do occasionally sing Willie 0’ Winsbury.

Yes, they are similar ish tunes or indeed you could swap around. I wasn’t aware of any rules here. For what it’s worth I use different chording at cadence points but by the same token, I mix up the tunes I use for The Barleycorn and Stancil Hill. Possibly more too.

I doubt the usual “it says so by famous Irish people on the internet” influences any introduction I might give.
