The first two parts of a four-part Traditional Irish double-jig, in 6/8 time.
I have arranged this for solo guitar in Dropped-D tuning, that is, standard tuning with the lower E (6th) string lowered a whole-tone to D.
This Jig is unusual in that it has four parts, although only the first two are presented here!Part A
comprises Bars 1 to 8. Part B
comprises Bars 9 to 16.
In playing, the tune actually starts with a leading D (open 4th string) not shown. Part A should be then played through twice, followed by Part B played through twice. Repeat the whole to form a very nice two-part Jig.
The Tablature also requires a little explanation, due to limitations of showing altered tunings in the Composer.
- The Tablature is written for Dropped-D tuning, D-A-D-G-B-E, and is shown correctly for playing the tune in its' original Key of D Major.
- The tune is in 6/8, although the Composer thinks it is 3/4, so the Click: metronome will give incorrect accents.
- The sound you will hear on playback is transposed up a whole-tone to the Key of E, so if you want to play along, you will need to use a Capo at the 2nd fret.
