This is a reel, a dance. It must be played at a lively tempo and in very even rhythm.

Note that there is a pick-up note in the first measure balanced by the incomplete measure at the end.

It's originally in cut-time,which would be two beats per measure. Two chords per measure would be: G Am, G Am, Am G, Am G, G Am, G C, C G, G G.

If you wish to play it in 4/4 time, here's the four chords per measure version: G G Am Am, G G G Am, Am Am G G, Am Am G C, G G Am Am, G G C G, C D G D, G G G.

Play this twice and go on to the next page.
