Free Fiddle Sheet Music
Redhaired Boy

Free fiddle sheet music Redhaired Boy with guitar tabs and chords. This popular Irish fiddle tune will be a popular piece for your flat-picking guitar students or your beginning fiddle players.

Three versions, in the keys of A and G!

Redhaired Boy is fun to flatpick in the key of G, and much easier than in the key of A.

The key of A is easier for fiddlers to finger, but for guitar, the key of G works nicely and flows faster.

One caveat regarding the key of G: this song requires the use of the F chord!

If you are having a couple of students play this piece as a duet, one of them will have to be good at the F chord. (This would be excellent motivation for working on that chord.)

Below is another version in G.

This sheet music differs by only a couple of eighth notes, but those extra eighth notes make Redhaired Boy a much fancier-sounding piece.

Even more fun, even more cute!

See Devil's Dream for a discussion of stroking DOWN and UP.

I tell my students that a general principle to follow is to pick DOWN on the first of 2 eighth notes and UP on the second eighth note.

Plain quarter notes are DOWN.  

A quarter note followed by 2 eighth notes would be DOWN, DOWN-UP.

Have fun with Redhaired Boy!
