Wailing Ghostly Rover Full Score

From Wailing Ghostly Rover

"Fingerstyles" takes well known UK Folk Tunes and gives them a going over as only Guitarists can!
This piece is "Whistling Gypsy Rover", sometimes called "The Gypsy Davey", a song about a young girl who falls in love, and elopes with a travelling Gypsy lad. The father is understandly a bit miffed with this, and chases his daughter. But when he catches up with them, he finds to his horror that he has misjudged them. The lad is not a lad but a Lord.

But in this version, imagine the father stalking the lovers in the bushes, in the style of a black and white Horror Movie; this is the result...
