Connaught Man's Ramble

Rowan Chisholm (1708) · [archive]
Style: Bluegrass · Level: Beginner · Tempo: 120
Pages: 1 2 3

This jig (an Irish dance) was originally in 6/8 time.

The pickup notes at the start balance the incomplete measure at the end.

Here's the chord progression starting from the first full measure:

D, G, D, G, D, G, G, G.

The rhythm is one chord on the first beat of the measure and one on the 4th 8th note. (The & of 2 in 3/4 time.) This gives the sound of 6/8 time.

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