This is a fun intermediate classical finger-style guitar solo arrangement of the traditional French folk song, as performed by Brad Powell (who records as The Candlelight Guitarist) on his album "Sleepytime Special: The Lullaby Train To Dreamland." (Like other Candlelight Guitarist pieces, it seamlessly blends classical, jazz, folk, blues and others styles.) Entertaining for all ages, it's written in both standard notation and TAB. Based on the famous "round" it has some moderate counterpoint, very suitable for intermediate level players with some classical training or finger-style experience. Hear Brad's original recording at

OPTIONAL PERCUSSION: This arrangement has cues for optional percussion (occasional wind chimes and bell tree). You can hear those instruments subtly included on the YouTube performance (featuring master percussionist Michito Sanchez, who worked with John Denver, Crosby, Stills & Nash, Elton John, The Rolling Stones, Robert Palmer, Herbie Hancock, Placido Domingo, Luis Miguel, Glenn Frey, and many others.)

"The talented and creative Bradley Powell is the Candlelight Guitarist. His music is original and some of the most soul soothing I have ever heard.

Bob McKillop, founder and publisher,
Brad Powell is a talented and highly trained California guitarist and composer who calls himself "The Candlelight Guitarist", and for good reason. His music is perfect for situations in which candlelight figures prominently. Quiet meditation, romance, intellectual stimulation – the soft, pure tones of his Spanish and classic instrumental style open up your heart and render it more receptive to the spiritual messages that these pursuits engender."
