DADGAD Fingerstyle

Beautiful and easy Irish polka arrangement in DADGAD tuning – Ger The Rigger with free tab

This week I’ll be teaching you to play an easy DADGAD fingerstyle arrangement of one of my favourite Irish polkas, Ger The Rigger! I’ve slowed it down to make a nice, bouncy little arrangement that can be played for hours on end leading to a kind of polka trance!

This arrangement and nine others are available in my latest collection of DADGAD tabs. The complete download also comes with MIDI playthroughs, a short history of each tune and its author where relevant, tabs, playing instructions, chord diagrams and loads more! Get it here.

You can download the tab on its own (free) here.
