Somewhere Over The Rainbow (Instrumental)

A song originally compsed by E.V Harburg / Harold Arlen. But I played this piece according to how Eva Cassidy performed it live at Blues Alley. I didn't sing along though. Hope you like it! :)

My goodness. This is beautiful.
I am astounded. First came upon your site for some christian worship music, but love this. Somewhere over the rainbow...

It's great song, but it's little difficult to play it.
Could you make an instructional video for this song?

Hi Graham, just found your website via YouTube. I'm glad I did, as I have been looking for tabs for Eva Cassidy's over the rainbow for ages. Your performance for this version was excellent. Keep up the good work.

Best Regards from Scotland
