An easy solo guitar arrangement of Robert Burns' ode to the freedom of man that has become the unofficial national anthem in Scotland and is also known elsewhere in the world.

Two other solo guitar arrangements of the tune are also available, one slightly more difficult (with dropped D tuning) and one specially for flatpicking guitar.

Alternative titles include:
"Is There For Honest Poverty"
"For a' That and a' That"
and in Germany:
"Trotz alledem und alledem"

Level: technically easy, musically fairly easy
The tune goes up to the a on the first string.

The mp3 file is a converted midi file. The music will sound even better when you play it on a real guitar. :-)
