Shebeg and Shemoore - Chords, Lyrics and Origins


This is an instrumental, so no chords or lyrics I'm afraid. Just sit back and enjoy the beautiful tune. It was written by the blind Irish harper, Turlough O'Carolan. O'Carolan was an itinerant musican who roamed around Ireland in the seventeenth century. Some regard him as the Ireland's national composer. The title of this piece means, 'the big hill and the little hill.' I learnt it from my first guitar teacher as a teenager.
