How to recognize the different kinds of tunes
I am having same trouble hearing the difference between the kinds of tunes (e.g.single jig / slip jig / fling / slide / polka / mazuka). I would love to be able to say to myself "thats definitely a single jig" etc. Double jigs,reels,hornpipes are obvious to me but I get confused with the rest. I understand the reading/structure of the tunes but what easy system can I use to help me recognize the tune type when just listening to a tune.
