Irish Washerwoman Tutorial

This is a very well known traditional dance tune and an all time Irish favourite. It’s known to have been played throughout the British Isles and North America and apparently dates back to the 17th century. It is a Jig written in 6/8 time and my own arrangement is played here in the key of G Major.
