name for a 12/8 jig
I’m not going to post the ABC for this tune here, given what Jeremy is likely to do to it. I’ve posted staff notation for it on Nigel Gatherer’s forum:
I found it on a hand-written slip of paper inside an old copy of "Irish Tunes for the Scottish and Irish War-Pipes", compiled by William Walsh, Chicago, arranged by David Glen, Edinburgh. The rhythm is notated in a rather odd way.
It’s very familiar and I’ve heard it many times in Scottish sessions (with a lot less twiddles) - in sets which would suggest it was a Scottish pipe tune. Anybody here got a name for it?
