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 and repeat the words below the bar.·

ONE two three | ONE two three | ONE two three | ONE two three

The manuscript (written form) would look like this:
