Skye Boat Song arr. flute & two acoustic guitars

In this arrangement for flute accompanied by two acoustic guitars, one guitar plays chords with standard guitar tuning whilst the other has its sixth string tuned to D, (usually described as dropped down D tuning) and plays a patterned accompaniment. This familiar Scottish folk song begins and ends with a chorus (chorus-verse-chorus) and whilst the song’s text describes the escape of Bonnie Prince Charles it is often sung as a lullaby. This improver level arrangement is in 6/8 time. In this arrangement the accompanying chords have been updated to make the setting more contemporary. There is no introduction in order to keep the phrase structure balanced. There are three accompaniments featuring two acoustic guitars playing at (1) 52 (2) 50 (3) 48 dotted quarter note (crotchet) beats to the minute.
