Subject: TAB: traditional Irish jig

Thanks to those who responded to my posting of a traditional Scots tune.  
Here's a traditional Irish jig (6/8 time) with suggested chords.
Play part 1 twice then part 2 twice.  The note marked with * should be 
played only when going into part 2; otherwise (when repeating part 1) play
the two notes in the Intro bar.  Try it: you'll see what I mean.

Part 2 is mostly played with a half-barre at fret 7.
