Dick’s Pig

Written (as far as I know) by The Bushwackers. A band from Australia.
I’m not sure it’s really a reel but anyway…

The chords they use are

Re: Dick’s Pig

In the 80th I travelled New Zealand. Musicians gave me a local tunebook: "Jolly Jezebel’s Favourites".
Dick’s Pig is in it and I’d say it’s likely to be from that part of the world.
Unfortunately I lost track with the guys who wrote the book: Bouzoukiplayer Steve McGlone & Fiddleplayer Jeanne McGlone. The book contains 134 tunes with genuine stormproven chords.

Wow! I found Steve in the Session: https://thesession.org/members/99335
I’ll try to get the answer from him.
