The fiddle plays the main hook of the song in the intro and re-intro sections. We'll adapt the melody for guitar.

This is a simple hook, featuring a melody derived from the D major scale. Note how the first run through of the melody takes place in a lower octave, then jumps up to a higher octave for the second round. Each recurring melody in the song stays at the higher octave, until the outro where it drops back down on the repeat.

Note the slight variation in the melody just before the key change, leading nicely into that final verse!
