The Pleasant Beggar - Guitar

Russ Barenberg

   This delightful melody can be found on Russ Barenberg’s “When at Last” CD—one of many treasures to be found there. It’s become a local favorite in this neck of the woods  and is performed by the Crowlin Ferlies in Aspen. Identical version is tabbed out for mandolin.

Here’s the recorded version from Russ Barenberg. You’ll notice a meaningful tempo upgrade after the second round.
