Tar Road to Sligo

Backing guitar rhythm for a jig in Em

Backing rhythm for The Tar Road to Sligo. Start with just an Em chord and play the down, down, up rhythm. Stay in the bass section of the guitar at first. Accent the 1st and 4th beats of the 6/8 timing. As you get more comfortable with the rhythm. Add more chords.

I will post the tab for the melody later.
