Here’s that tune again

This time sung in original language, but by six backs. Still good though.

I’d be interested to hear what Bungle and our other guitar experts think about the playing. Looks unreal to me :thumbup:

I’m no guitar expert, but that guy plays like one. Very nice.

I see the arrangement he’s playing was by a guy I’m not familiar with, John Renbourn. Seems he collaborated often with Bert Jansch whom Led Zeppelin ‘borrowed’ a couple of tunes from.
Jimmy Page often cited Scottish folk musician Bert Jansch as an influence. So much so that two Zeppelin tracks bear strong similarities to recordings Jansch made: “Black Mountain Side” borrows heavily from “Down by Blackwaterside,” while “Bron-Y-Aur Stomp” is clearly a reworking of Jansch’s “The Waggoner’s Lad.” Jansch never sued: Although Page gave himself writing credits, the original material is based on folk melodies. But one of Jansch’s bandmates in Pentangle, Jacqui McShee complained, “It’s a very rude thing to do. Pinch somebody else’s thing and credit it to yourself.”

Might be, my memory is not my strong point. I'm bad at lyrics, for sure.

But my home was the lowlands is the correct lyric.
