dan Tune Req: She Moved through the Fair (17) RE: Music for She Moved Through The Fair 08 Jan 98


Hi Susan, I'm new to this site and I stumbled on your message while randomly poking around. I've found two similar but not identical versions. Both are in standard music notation, not tablature. One gives chords, and I'll work out my own chords for the other tonight or tomorrow. These are photocopied from songbooks and "it would be as much as my place is worth" to use the office fax for such a purpose so I'll have to (gasp!) SNAIL MAIL them to you. If you're interested, respond with a mailing address.

You say in your message "...I have been searching the net to try to find the tab or chords for days now. If anyone there has any suggestions...". I have one, you're probably not going to like it, but I guess maybe I've earned the right. Before there was a Web, before there was an internet, there were such things as books. When I read your message I went (yes, on the internet) to the UCSD Library catalog, searched subject folk songs, got to folk songs, Irish, and wrote down a couple of call numbers. Going to the library was a wonderful excuse to get out of the office for an hour and a half (the Music Library and the Science and Engineering Library are in the same building so I could justify this). I find that sometimes low tech is still best. On the other hand, your request sure gets a lot more exposure here than on a 3x5 card. Best of Luck, Dan
