Scarborough Fair still in my fingers

When I saw the photo shot by Marina from Moscow, now visiting Scarborough Beach, I had immediately a flashback to what I played so often on my guitar: “Scarborough Fair” by Simon & Garfunkel. 40 years ago? Yes, I have that fixed in my fingers: “still crazy after all that years” (a Paul Simon song-title too …)

history:
Paul Simon learned that from Martin Carthy 1965 (Steeleye Span), but the song was first published in a song book 1673! Very British!
P.S.:
actually I’m trying to learn a better fingerstyle picking on my acoustic guitar, watch my ongoing soundcloud content:

  1. As a fan of Simon and Garfunkel, I love this song! I’m impressed by your rendition. I have some of their music and can listen to them over and over.
    I’d like to be able to play this song, but it will take a while since I haven’t played a whole song of anything since I was a teenager.
    Hubby got me a new guitar a couple of years ago, but I need to heal more (physically) in order to play. He is patiently waiting. Then I can learn to play guitar all over again, and use it for added therapy for my mind.

    • PS—sorry i gave you the impression i was trying to build my social network, or that i was using you to do so. I was trying to tell people that your blog is wonderful. I realize you already have tons of followers and don’t need more. But people are always looking for the wonderful things that are out there. I just wanted to say that I appreciate your blog and your hard work. No pressure to pass awards on. I sit on awards for months myself. I always thought of them as a way of complimenting the recipient, not using the recipient or the readers. I am truly sorry that I created that impression. Feel free to delete this reply and my previous one as well, if that is your wish. Sincerely, Kate

      • dear Kate,
        I adore your work, don’t understand me wrong – for sure it’s my bad English (I’m German) – I only wanted to beg your pardon, that it takes too much time for me, to follow all those complicated award rules – instead I try to write a daily blog post with music – that takes time – of course I like to follow your blog, Kate!
