Recording of Gary Lee Moore (MP3 here)


Alice Blue Gown is an absolutely lovely waltz with a plaintive feel. Moore played the tune through three times. The first half of the second time through is a high passage, going up to a high D. You may need to play this in second or third position (index finger on the G or A on the first string). Moore played this with some difficult timings, which I have tried to represent as best I could in the notation. I would recommend listening to his recording to really get a good feel for his timing.
