Dots (Music Notation)
As always for traditional tunes, the musical notation and chords do not indicate the “right” way to play the tune, but are a useful reference.
Transitioning between tunes: For the set to flow gracefully from one tune to the next, the endings of the first two tunes are altered slightly for the transition. To transition from Brosna to O’Keefe’s, in the final measure of Brosna, an Em chord is inserted after the G chord. To transition to from O’Keefe’s to Denis Murphy’s, the final Am chord in Denis Murphy’s is replaced with an A5 chord (in other words, the third of the chord is omitted, which is a C, so that the chord is neither major nor minor).
