Misc Traditional - Si Bheag Si Mhor tab

Si Bheag, Si Mhor
By Turlough O'Carolan
Performed by William Coulter on Celtic Treasure - Track 07
Tabbed by Fargenator (fargenator@yahoo.com)

DADGBE (Dropped D) Tuning, Capo I

  This tab is matched to the sound of William Coulter's
rendition of the O'Carolan classic found on the Celtic
Treasure Album.  Although I did my best to represent the
timing, tabs can only do so much, so you'll need to listen
to the song to get an idea of the rhythm.
  While this may seem tough, most of the song is just
slight variations on two different, basic verses, those
verses being the First Verse and Third Verse.  I believe
this is pretty accurate, with some slight uncertainty
when it comes to which strings are played in the chords.
Email me any mistakes, please.
