Thread Name: Tune Req: chieftains 4
Subject: RE: Tune Req: chieftains 4
In "the Fiddler's Fake Book,' that huge and widespread compendium, that tune is called 'The Battle of Aughrim.'

We don't play it the way the Chieftains do. We play it somewhat slower, and our guitarist adds a deep, threatening thrumming which makes you realize the song is about war.

It's a good tune for a new player because A part goes up and down the scale.
