this looks like a different version from the record,
there is another version @the seashell..also extremely beautiful. all of mark's transcriptions are admirable in accuracy and analysis, the few deviations from the recording,still work in the musical context. please try to memorize 'solo guitar' exactly as it sounds,as ted asked me to do.time feel,articulation,dynamics,phrasing etc. are all subtle qualities which are not notated.im happy to be back in internet zone,if just to see the progress on this sacred site,thank you all;rafi .

Here's a transcription I've done of the intro (the first 50 seconds) of Danny Boy (the Solo Guitar album version). It's in Ted's "grid notation", ( which is probably not the best notation for "exact" transcribing of this sort), so it looks a little complex at times. If anybody has any questions don't hesitate to ask.
Don't forget to tune down the lowest string a whole step. From E to D if you're in standard, or from Eb to Db if your guitar is tuned down a 1/2 step like Ted's on the original.

And, that is hard enough! Hi there! I'm new to this forums, and try to learn this huge ammount of information (thank you guys). I recently watched this video of ted , and he mentions this "barbershop" thing at 7:20. Can someone explain a little bit of it pls? Thank you
