Scarborough Fair

Scarborough Fair

Here is my arrangement of Scarborough Fair. Score/tab is available here. I’ve always loved this melody. It’s an old English folk song that uses the dorian mode.

To create the dorian mode, you first begin with the natural minor…

E Natural Minor

and then raise the 6th note in the scale (C becomes C-sharp)….

E Dorian

Like many people, I first heard this song from the Simon and Garfunkel version….
