McDonnell's Traditional Irish Music Slow Session


Waltzes are in 3/4 time which means there are 3 beats per measure and a quarter note (crotchet) gets one beat. It is common to emphasize the first beat.·· For example here is how you would count while playing a waltz. The vertical lines separate measures.· Listen to South Wind by pressing the play button below and repeat the words below the bar.· [Note: Loading speed of MP3 player depends on internet bandwidth & computer power.]
