Byrd & Dowland: Fortune my foe (P 62)
A popular old song. Words are available on Lyrics Mode.
The first 16 bars are transcribed by me for the uke from a choral version by William Byrd, and the remainder is John Dowland’s variation on this theme. There’s quite a bit of position playing which helps once you get used to it (I almost have!)
