Irish Tuning please help

I Cant seem to get this whole DADGAD tuning right. I want to play Black and Tans but when I go and strum a traditional G chord it sounds HORRIBLE, Someone please help me, I need specific instructions on how to go from Standard tuning to Irish.

You answered your own question. trying to play a traditional' chord on a different tuning is bound to sound strange becuase you are playiing different notes when fingering the same chords. DADGAD has its own chord voicing and so you would have to learn where to put your fingers to play the coresponing chord, which in dadgad is much easier with the basic chords. you could play a D , G and A with just 2 fingers ,which allows you to have some free to to add some notes. the other thing about DADGAD is it gives you 'that' sound, the one your looking for I guess , and black and tans sounds great on it too!! DO a search of the internet and you will come up with several dadgad chord charts with the basics.WHen you get more confident and more hungry to learn more you will find DADGAD books that go into more detail. Slan mo chara!

Dude you don't need to use a different tuning to play black and tans its a few simple chords, Dm c f ?

Western Highway - Lyrics & Chords ?

Anyone got the chords and lyrics for Gerry O'Beirne's Western Highway song please ?

Re: Gerry O'Beirne Western Highway

i need the chords at least to this song! i need. will someone please put them up cause it is a brilliant song!!!!! thank you. xxx

Re: Gerry O'Beirne Western Highway

Sorry, I messed up the previous message.

I have worked out the first part of the intro a while back, but never got round to finishing it. The backup on the Maura O'Connell version uses two guitars, one in DADGAD, and that's the bit I was working on. If you still need it, I might go back and finish it.

Re: negative vibes

C RUNDOWN TO Am/ Em/ F

Chorus... Am/G/F

you can get away with it this way.......

negative vibes first verse chords

I saw your auld post when I was lookin mfor the chords to the song my self, so I thought why not try and figure them out! And of course I did, but not all. I downloaded a shitty version of the song and the whole negative vibes chorus is fooked up, so I could only get the first bit, but here it is.

C, (not sure of the name of the next one. Just move the note c down to a b on the fifth string and take off the finger below it), am, g, f.
For the bridge it's just : c, f, g, am, em.

Thats all I know, but if i get any more i'll be sure to tell. toodles.

Re: negative vibes first verse chords

could anyone tell me the chords for "celtic tiger" by damien dempsey?

Re: negative vibes first verse chords

Its not too hard, great tune tho.without tab its kinda hard to explain bt basically its C then move your highest finger of the c chord to the second fret(rather than the third) and leave the next string open (im sure this is some variant of the C chord bt i dnt no the name!) then its an Am diminished (jus Am bt leave the middle string open) then G then F. thats for the intro/chorus,try hammer ons n stuff to jazz it up a bit!.the verse is C,F,G,Am dim,then G again.then the bit where he starts "never goin to let...." is C,that C variant,F, and G. Hope you can understand! i can play a load of his songs so jus let me know.

My father plays it in the Irish Band he's in, "The Fly'n Colum" (for info on the band, contact DonMeixner@aol.com), and the chords he uses for rythm are G and Am, but he capo's at the 5th for flavor.

The intro is something like this. (start with the Am shape)
D|----2-0-------------------
A|--------3-2-0-------------
E|--------------3-0-(3?)----

Hope that helps,
Greg Meixner
