"Poor Boy Long Ways from Home" and "Vestapol"
« on: January 21, 2011, 11:49:43 AM »
I had a whole long thing typed up here, but I think a better post would have just been - does anyone  know much about the link between "Vestapol" and "Poor Boy's a Long Ways from Home?"

The original parlour tune in open D tuning was called "The Siege of Sebastapol" and this tuning was named after it. This tune bears no resemblance to to "Vastapol" and it's variants.

Google isn't giving me anything.  Would you happen to know a place where I can hear the original tune?

If you can read music, an early version of The Siege Of Sebastopol is here.
