Irish Washerwoman

This was originally in 6/8 time. (Unfortunately, the lesson software on this site only does 3/4 or 4/4 time, so I had to edit the time signature of the piece to make it fit this website.)

Unfortunately, the groove machine only does 4/4, so here are the chords for this from the first full measure:

G, G, C, C, G, G, C, G.

The rhythm, as I play it, is one chord for each group of three 8th notes. That is on beats 1 and 4 of the 6/8 time.

There is a pickup measure at the start that balances the partial measure at the end.

Play this through twice and go on to the next page.


To see (and use) the sheet music I did for this piece in 6/8 time (in both standard notation and TAB) go to Irish Wash-Woman which is on my new website. Thank you!
