5-Part Jigs ~ (& if you want to go higher, that’s OK too) :-D
OK you tune jockies out there let’s see if you can dig up anything else in the way of a 5-part jig other than:
"Doctor O’Neill’s Jig"

There is reason in my madness. But if you’re completely at a loss, then you can add something more monstrous by way of a multi-part jig ~ in EXCESS of 5 parts, and there’s a few out there. If it’s a favourite, tell us, and why, and why not also add where you first learned it, and from who.
In trying to pass on some of what has been shared with me I’ve found myself in a teaching situation, and sometimes the folks that are drawn in can be worse than clueless, as one who requested for his first tune to learn a certain 8-part jig ~ NOW! We had a talk, but this is what he wanted, and not slowly either. I told him I could help to eventually get him there but explained that such multi-part tunes are not really the norm. He didn’t have the patience and I wasn’t in it for the money. I sent him elsewhere, and he never did go very far, like so many skin bangers. :-D
As always, in things that can be driven by ego and testosterone, such problems, in my experience, tended to rise from the male side of our species… In dance too… :-/
