Nice Flute Jigs in G?

Nice Flute Jigs in G?

I’m looking some nice Jigs in the Key of G which work well on the flute …… any ideas?

Maybe ones which arn’t that well know, I guess I know already most of the really famous ones…

Kesh
Boys of the Town
Out on the Ocean
Kerfuntan
Battering Ram
Ship in Full Sail
Blackthorn Stick
The Gold Ring
The Old Favourite
Gives us a Drink of water

Thx a lot

Re: Nice Flute Jigs in G?

The Maid on the Green is a really nice one for flute, but if you know most of the well-known ones you probably already have that one in your arsenal.

Re: Nice Flute Jigs in G?

Likewise for Tell Her I Am.

Re: Nice Flute Jigs in G?

Kevin - Here’s jig’s I’m mostly re-learning at the moment.
A couple of Not ’ Flute Frendly ’ one’s in A major, but good Old tunes.
A couple in C major, for yer auld Clarke’s Whistle ;-)
And the rest, will be a doddle to you mate :-)

Re: Nice Flute Jigs in G?

I like:
Mouse in the Mug
Old Flail
John McHough’s
Helvic Head

Re: Nice Flute Jigs in G?

Agree with the Mouse in the Mug - great cheerful G tune.

Also:

The Haunted House
The Maid at the Well
The Roaring Barmaid

all favourites of mine.

Re: Nice Flute Jigs in G?

Wow ! There’s a hell of a lot of Mice :-)
” And a friend of mine’s Version that Bottom one.”
Here is his site also they use Brian Pundyke’s site,
for a tune base.

* Just Click link, http://www.eatms.co.uk/
Then go and click Slow Session in the top menu.
Go down to where you see a wee logo, of a wee
man playing a fiddle with ’ Traditional Irish Music &
Learning Resource Centre. www.tradirishmusic.org
click that Logo..Just click OK to take away the silly pop up,
and ’ Bingo ’ ( I think is a good site for learner’s )

Re: Nice Flute Jigs in G?

You forgot The Mouse In The Kitchen, f4! :)

Re: Nice Flute Jigs in G?

Don’t forget The Mouse with the Money, The Mouse at The Churn, The Mouse’s Purse, and Old Mouse You Have Killed Me.

Re: Nice Flute Jigs in G?

Or, ’ Old Cat You Have Killed Me ’
Squeeeek !

Re: Nice Flute Jigs in G?

‘I buried my dog and danced up on top of her’

Re: Nice Flute Jigs in G?

Hey. I’ve written one for the flute called Isla Mackenzie’s 21st. That failing, Gavin Marwick’s St Christophe is lovely. Not sure if the later is on the Session. Both aren’t too common. The former being especially rare ;-) Best, C
