About this tab version
This song hasn't yet been tabbed. Irish song however a very popular tune here in Scotland. Was this info helpful? Yes No
This is all tabbed by ear and so it won't be 100 percent correct.
So feel free to adjust some notes or add new ones but it is as best as I can do. Standard tunning just with E
tuned to D. I used this video to for reference: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nf_5G_kCE8c
Thanks and I hope you enjoy.
Key for tabs is H=Hammer on P=Pull off
