Acoustic Guitar Community

Welcome to the Acoustic Guitar Community.

In 1809 Nathaniel Gow printed a four-page foolscap sheet called "Largo's Fairy Dance", a suite of two tunes: The Fairies Advancing - a slow march - and The Fairy Dance, composed for the Fife Hunt Ball of 1802. The former tune is forgotten now, but the latter has become a standard tune in Scotland, as well as many other countries.

The chords in this tune are not hard, but keeping the flow of the melody going is tricky! You can find some tab for it on my website at:
