Great québécois tune, which I heard by the Fréres Brunet (album: Magie, track: Le reel à répondre) whose version is transcribed here. I’ve also heard this from Becky Tracy, the fiddler from Nightingale. Her rendition of the B part is slightly different and is as follows:

Also cool but a little harder to play with all the string crossings.

I like to play this tune with Le reel à répondre, Manitou cassé (AKA Lucky Trapper in D), or maybe reel americain.

… snap your fingers, folks, because another Frank Zappa reference just made it to the sesh!
