This is the famous Irish traditional song called "Rocky Road to Dublin".
I have prepared this easy version for beginners but the song is pretty fast, so do not worry if at first you can not play it at the speed of the video.
You will play solo and strumming accompaniment.
The accompaniment is playing only two chords: Em and D. As you can see in the video, for the strumming I used thumb and index finger. This allows me to get a beautiful warm sound for the accompaniment.
Perform the song very slowly at first, then gradually increase the speed until you master the technique.
