The Alhambra

The only really challenging bit in this tune is the 8th note triplet. That is, 3 notes played in the place of 2. It takes a little practice to learn, but once you have the hang of it, it's not hard. Listen to the online tune to hear the sound of it.

Chords for accompaning this--at four chords per measure, one per quarter note: D D G D, D D G G, D D G D, D A D D, D D G D, D D G G, D D G D, D A D D.

Unlike the other reels I've posted, this one did not show a repeat sign at the end of the first strain (first section). However, it does show a heavy bar like it was an ending. (Maybe the dots for the repeat were forgotten by whoever edited this book?) I would play it like the others, repeat this once and go on to the second strain/section.
