Macroom Lasses - easy intro to 3rd position
« on: Nov 16, 2004, 12:14:45 PM »
I've been playing this tune a lot recently and it struck me that it would be a good tune for anyone who's just starting out with 3rd position.

T:The Macroom Lasses
AF | EAAc BAaf | ecBd cAFA | EAAc BAaf | ecBcA2 :|
ce | a2 fa eace | dBcA BAFA | aefa "0"e"1"a"3"c'"1"a | "2"b"1"a"2"b"3"c'"1"a2"1"a"2"b |
"3"c'"1"a"3"f"1"a "0"e z "2"ce | dBcA BAFA | EFAB cAaf | ecBcA2 ||

The notes I've written fingerings for are all in 3rd position except for the first and last. All the 3rd position playing is on the E string, except for the last F# on the D string. In bar 7, shift up while playing the open E. In bar 9, shift down during the rest - once you get the hang of it you can keep playing the open E as you shift down.

Hope this is helpful to someone.
