Jig Types—My Nemesis
Someone told me a good way to make a few pennies is to start playing for the Irish dance competitions around here. I thought, hey, good idea—guess I better start figuring out what the different jig types are.
What is the difference between a slide, single jig, double jig, triple jig, does it even matter, and examples of each…I think I have slip jigs down! (9/8 time, right?)
I’m particularly wondering if the difference even matters. Will a dancer get thrown off if a jig I thought was a double turns out to be a single?
