The Pogues – Fiesta (Chords)

The Pogues – Fiesta (Chords)

Time again for a week of Irishness starting, as always, with some St Shane.

Another dead simple one with just three chords. Since the instrumental bits are quite long, I’ve included bar lines. Which reminds me, I should probably do a post about bars some time. I’ve written up the full version, the video has a shortened intro.

Suggested Strumming

You can use this strum all the way through (except the stoppy bits):

d – d – d u d u

You can take it at a steady pace like this:

Slow strum

Or you can get into the spirit of the song and go double time like this:

Fast Strum

Twiddly Bits

Fiesta Instrumental (Tab)

Here’s the instrumental bits (and the intro is a shortened version of this).

    I maybe totally looking in the wrong places, but you guys should open a “Submit your things” bit or something
    Stumbled across this electric uke cover of Bach’s Toccata, it is so brilliantly fantastic, it makes my ears bleed with jealousy:
