Traditional Tunebook-
      Carolan's Compositions
Turlough O'Carolan (1670-1738) was an Irish harper who fused elements of traditional Irish music with those of the Italian Baroque to create a unique and well-loved body of work. I have arranged most of the tunes below for solo guitar; these can be found in my four fingerstyle guitar books. - GW
See also my biographical sketch of Carolan, and my sample fingerstyle guitar arrangements.

Here are several of my favorite Carolan tunes. To get all 214 of them you can download his complete surviving works in one handy PDF file- Turlough O'Carolan Complete PDF
