The  traditional  English folk song Greensleeves dates back to 1580. It's safe to say that it was  a  smash  hit  as more than half a dozen versions were registered at the London Stationer's Company that  same year. The tune was a natural fit for the lute and by extension the modern day guitar.  It  continues  to  this  day  to  be one of the most famous melodies ever written going far beyond what so many of us recognize as the Christmas tune "What Child Is This".

With  so many existing arrangements the prospect of a modern day version should and must include something  new. This three and a half minute work, not quite a theme and variations, begins with a  slow  introduction  and  states  the  melody  in  the  traditional  manner with some harmonic variation.  It then moves to a highly energetic jazzy frolic that falls easily on the guitar and is a blast to play!
