Indian Point

Here is a nice jig written by Rick Mohr. It was recorded by The Moving Violations in 2001.

A few people in our session play this one, it’s a nice tune.

A tweak - or is it a correction?

Bar six in the B part sounds a bit odd to my ear: should it read ‘cef g2a’? This seems to be a bit more fluent.

@Bazza Your way sounds fine, but is not the way this tune was intended to go. Check the recordings.

Indian Point, X:2

This is from a Youtube video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DJorMfp-jC0) for session member Dutchie. I don’t know how long you’ve been playing but you have to "displace" the octave all the time mainly because fiddles go down to low G. I either play the low note up an octave or arrange the line in some creative way and find the "best place" to get back down depending on where the line is. It is not easy at all for me but it is part of what you have to learn on flute or whistle.

Re: Indian Point

Might just be me, but it seems like this tune has some similarities to the theme from the movie ‘Last of the Mohicans’, Promontory, especially if you play the tune fast and fluid.
Any thoughts?

Re: Indian Point

A few of many nice recordings of this: The Irish Experience’s album "Green Energy", and Coffee Zombies’ album "Good To the Last Beat".

Re: Indian Point

I have a beautiful CD by a lovely fiddler named Alex Mitchell. Many genres music represented, all well-played & sung. But there is a jig there called Arran Boat - that sounds just like Indian Point….
