The Rights Of Man

This is a popular Irish hornpipe, not too difficult to play. I've put in a variation the second time round.

The thing with this, on guitar, is to get the fingering right. The triplets at the beginning aren't too hard but they need a bit of practice. What you need to do is play them with deliberation. Know what you need to do and go for it!

In bar 8 you'll notice the B is played on the 3rd string, not open. That's because you don't want it ringing at that point.

The other thing is that on the second time round the last E is played on the 5th string, 7th fret. This is because you need to be near the 8th fret on the B string. If you play it on the D string, 2nd fret, it gets cut off as you jump up.
