I think this gets quite close to Bert Jansch's arrangement of Blackwaterside if he'd done it in DADGAD. I basically transposed his standard tuning version to DADGAD, removing the bits that were too complicated for me and messing up the rest :)

@wasteofspace1949, anne briggs is super easy. just drop the bass E to a D in normal guitar tuning. Then pluck the melody on strings 1, 4 and 6 whilst holding a D shape chord, removing your fingers the second time you play the shape, then strum twice. There's also the odd C chord thrown in ('that the Irish lad I spied' - that line). Good luck! x
Thanks very much :-)
Thanks very much - I must get back and do a few more of Bert's songs.

@htaylormusic Sorry, I don't have it tabbed yet, but I'll send you a message when I get down to it. :-)

Do you have this tabbed at all? I would love to learn this arrangement.
