This is the famous folk Irish song called "Lanigan's Ball". I have prepared this easy version for beginners.
You will play flatpicking solo and fingerstyle accompaniment with alternating bass.
The accompaniment is playing with four chords: Em, Am, D, Bm
As you can see in the video, for the chords I put the palm of my right hand on the sixth, fifth and fourth strings.
This allows me to get a more beautiful sound by palm muting those strings.
Perform the song very slowly at first, then gradually increase the speed until you master the technique.
