Scarborough Fair performed by Robert Lunn
Scarborough Fair is an old traditional English Ballad and nobody knows who actually composed the piece. I’ve always loved the version by Simon and Garfunkel and their recording inspired me to make a solo guitar arrangement of the melody.
Are you going to Scarborough Faire?
Parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme.
Remember me to one who lived there.
She once was a true love of mine….

Scarborough Fair performed by Rob Lunn
Scarborough Fair is one of my favorite melodies. It’s a beautiful English folk song made popular by Simon and Garfunkel.
You can learn this at my guitar school on my website.
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)….
Like many people, I first heard this song from the Simon and Garfunkel version….
