Inisheer and the Merry Blacksmith Tablature and Standard Notation for Mandolin

The Eastern Coast of Inisheer

According to Wikipedia, “Inisheer (Irish: Inis Oírr, the island’s official name, Inis Oirthir, meaning “east island”, and traditionally Inis Thiar, meaning “rear island”) is the smallest and most eastern of the three Aran Islands in Galway Bay, Ireland.”

Here is the mandolin tablature, standard notation, and chords to this lovely waltz.

While I was tabbing and chording Inisheer, I had The Merry Blacksmith right in front of me, so I went ahead and tabbed that one too.

Here it is!

Merry Blacksmith

I tried to find a way to upload music to go along with these, but to no avail through wordpress.  Luckily I found these two great videos on youtube from the same folks.  Looks like a father daughter combo!  Great playing.

Enjoy!  Their timing seems good, so play along.
