Sligo Maid

Backing guitar lesson in Am.

Sligo Maid is a reel in 4/4 time. It has two parts that are each repeated. 'AA-BB' The chords are (or can be) the same in both A and B parts. The tune is usually played in a set of two or three other tunes to form a set. Each tune is repeated two or three times. Try as many variations of Am and G chords as the tune repeats. Cheers!
