Star of the County Down Guitar Tabs

Star of the County Down guitar tabs will introduce your beginner guitar students to a terrific Irish song! This free Celtic sheet music will be a favorite of your students.  It has a strong rhythm and wonderful, singable melody, and fun words!

Some pieces of music seem to spread like wildfire through a group of musicians, and this free guitar sheet music will do that in your studio too. 



If you want to hear --and see! -- a fun rendition of this song, complete with fiddle, pipes, and drums, check out the "Orthodox Celts" on this YouTube video below. Vigorous, humorous, and very musical...my students and I have watched this video many times! 

When I have a really terrific piece like this that is also a song, I usually end up giving it to my pianists, guitarists, and singers alike. They all benefit, and frequently end up playing it together.

"The rhythm looks funny."

Yes - I have made the rhythm double-time for the sake of young students -- if you want a version using eighth notes, check out the same song  for voice.

One of the great things about this song is the EASY chords used. Em, G, and D are three of the easiest chords for beginner guitar players. And CHORDS are what your guitarists will be playing when they get together with other musicians to play Star of the County Down... I have the guitar tab melody here so that kids can learn exactly how it goes.

This vigorous, free Celtic sheet music will be a favorite of your students. It has a strong rhythm and wonderful, singable melody. I have to thank a fiddle and guitar teacher named Dan for introducing local musicians to this great piece. You'll thank him too!
