Re: Jigs

nah. Stay away from those 5+ part tunes. You’ll only annoy the judges. Better off with a solid 2 or 3 part tune.

How about a Paddy O’Brien (Tipperary) tune? There aren’t any posted here (due to copyright restrictions, I think), but you can check out his book, or http://www.ceolas.org/pub/tunes/tunes.pdf/POB.pdf for his settings of traditional tunes. Some of Sean Ryan’s tunes are often lovely too.

In the end, though, I think it’s best to pick a jig that goes nicely with your reel/hornpipe.

Re: Jigs

Go with Sean Ryan. Any tune.

Strike the gay harp with a few variations would be lovely

Re: Jigs

Whatever you play the best. The music is bigger than you are. Let it decide for you.

Re: Jigs

"Georgi" - why do you say there are no Paddy O’Brien jigs here? - I found three of them, [ assuming the people who attributed the tunes to him are correct. ]
