"The Lord Of Caernarfon’s Jig" / "Jig Arglwydd Caernarfon"

Surprised this wasn’t already here, ages back, but it don’t seem to be… But I remain surprised in that there doesn’t seem to be a recording of it on site here. I know it’s Welsh, but there are a number of Welsh recordings in the database, but evidently nothing for this in any of the possible spellings… 😏

Ceol’s version…

Damn my shortcuts eh? 😎

It’s just that I have trouble tying a d to an e… at least when I’m sober! ;)

Hey, yes, I like that, slurring up to the e from the d, under the influence of a nice single malt… πŸ˜‰

|1 g2 d e/f/ :|

… is what the first endeing of the B part should be in my "fix." Maybe I wasn’t sober after all…
