  "The Spey in Spate", a traditional tune in Scotland.

Normally it's played on a fiddle or banjo etc but it's not
too difficult to play on the guitar, if you start slowly.
I've included chords to be played as an accompaniment by your
friend: make sure he/she provides a strong rhythm without drowning 
out the melody.

This tune is a 2/4 reel - there are 8 semi-quavers (also known as
sixteenth notes) per bar (measure).  These are marked as dots
underneath each bar.  Bars 9, 11 and 13 start with a pair of
demi-semi-quavers (thirty-secondths?).  The 3 notes in the intro bar
(also to be played as part of the last bar if repeating the tune) should
be played as a triplet.

Hopefully I will post some more traditional Scots/Irish tunes 
arranged for guitar, if anyone's interested.
