Would like to have some help with explaining in Jay Ungar's 1983 "Ashokan Farewell " with the repeats. Advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Jerry

D.C. stands for da capo, Italian for "from the beginning."  Fine (pronounced "fee-nay") is Italian for "end."   In other words, when you see da capo, immediately  go back to the beginning of the piece and play it over again,.  Don't do the phrase marked "fine."  The next time you go through the piece (or the third time, fourth time or however long you or your audience can stand it), do the phrase marked fine.  Stop there.  Soak in the applause.
