Does anyone have a picking pattern that fits with this fantastic song? I prefer the version in Em, G, D, Em...etc. It can be found on Youtube (i think it was by the Clancy Brothers or something...).

I think this would be a great song for David Hodge to work out for us!!

Any help appreciated guys :D

Intro is something like this X2 which is also usually repeated between the verses

------------0------------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------------------
------0----------0-----------0-(h)2--0---------------------
--2--------------------4----------------------4---2----0----
--------------------------------------------------------------
-------------------------------------------------------------

.one..&..two...three..&...one..&..two..&...three..&..

But many versions exist.

The verses, etc can be played by a suitable 3 beat pattern like this one:

Em
-----------0----------------------------------------------
-----------0-----------------------------------------------
-------0-------0-----------0----------------------------------
---------------------2-------------------------------------
----------------------------------------------------------
--0--------------------------------------------------------

..one..&...two..&...three..&

Funny you should mention this song (and it is a great song) because I had to perform it at a show a week ago. I was backing up a local singer/songwriter who had put together a set of Irish music. The reason we were playing it on April 7 was because the March 16 show got snowed out.

I've still not heard the song on any recordings, by the bye. Since the performer was doing all relatively heavy-handed chord strumming, I went with arpeggios and also capoed the song up so that I could play it in Am. This way I could use a lot of hammer-ons to start out my arpeggios. Something like this:
Beat:
1 + 2 + 3 + 1 + 2 + 3 +

E - - - - - 0 - - - - - - - - - - - 0 - - - - - - - -
B - - - - - - - 1 - - - 1 - - - 1 - - - 1 - 1 - 1 - -
G - 0 H 2 - - - - - 2 - - - 0 - - - - 0H2 0H2 - 0 - -
D - 0 H 2 - - - - - - - - - 2 - - - - - - - - - - - -
A - 0 - - - - - - - - - - - 3 - - - - - - - - - - - -
E - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

more or less...

I suppose I'm going to have to go buy a copy of this song at some point... :wink:

Peace
