Re: My Old Clay Pipe

The tune Harry is playing is not "My Old Clay Pipe", but a related tune, "The Humours of Whisky"

My Old Clay Pipe, X:2

To either clarify or add to the confusion of these comments, Harry Bradley does indeed refer to this tune as The Humours of Whiskey, and attributes the tune to the playing of Tom Morrison, acknowledging that My Old Clay Pipe is the title that Morrison recorded it under. Not to be confused with the tune that he is playing in the video linked above, which he refers to as the modern version of the tune. I am adding The Humours Of Whiskey as an alternative title for this tune, bringing the current count of slipjigs posted here under that title up to six, god help us all. Anyhow, my setting is the version that he teaches, and it’s a pretty cracking slipjig at that.
