I Don't Play Rock Songs

I've gotten a lot of requests for rock and pop songs from Irish bands and singers. When visitors see a site for Irish songs and chords some expect to find groups like U2 , The Cranberries and Van Morrison. I don't do that kind of stuff, it's not that I don't like it it's just that they are not ''Irish Songs'' , they are pop and rock songs played by singers and groups who come from Ireland and that doesn't make their songs ''Irish Songs''
There are plenty of sites around that cater for U2 Van Morrison, The Cranberries and so on. What I concentrate on are folk and ballads tunes from over 200 years ago to the present day. That's what I play as a guitar player, and that's the stuff I was brought up on. If you have a piticular song and are looking for the chords and it's a folk tune then let me know and I'll have a go at it.
