  1. BRAVOOO! Thank you so much for the guitar lesson, Alan, and the wonderful singing too, It was a magic moment for me hearing you singing this marvellous tune.

  2. I'm so happy that you did this song, I love it! Thanks a lot for your amazing work!

    So what I'm getting from this tutorial (because I'm a bit new to fingerpicking), is that as long as we pick a bass string with our thumb, we can play the final three strings with our Index, Middle, and Ring fingers?

  4. One of my favorites Alan, and a brilliant job of singing! (I've heard so many 'professional singers' do such a poor interpretation of it on youtube).

  5. Assassins Creed 4 led me here :D

  6. I usually play along with your videos however this one i just had to listen, such great music, thank you.

  7. At 33 years of age I just got my first guitar and I'm very excited to learn. As I always loved Parting Glass I decided this to be my first song to learn. That's how I discovered your great channel. I browsed through youtube for some time searching for a good learning videos and yours are by far best edited and beginner friendly with all neccesary information placed on screen. Thank you for your videos!

  8. I have not yet found a version of this song that I like better than yours.
    amazing lesson and great vocals, thanks a lot.
