Not a bad attempt at all, Andy. I learnt this one from the dots (with a midi file to play along with) as it comes up occasionally at our Monday night Irish sessions in Chorlton. I was easily able to play along with your tab - I use different fingerings, e.g. base melody around barred A on 2nd fret for the A part, usually spiking the 5th string to an A (7th fret).

Chris My aim was to play it without open strings as that way I can easily move it up to G when they call that.

Understood - I play it in A out of open G - except for the 5th string spike. I do that for the same reason as you.
