Natalie MacMaster plays this in a set with Mouth of the Tobique.

You’ve notated it in 6/8, but it’s actually in 9/8. You would be better changing it to something like:

M:9/8
G3 GAB AGE | G3 GAB cBA | G3 GAB AGE |1 cBA BAG DEF :|2 cBA BAG D2 |]

Ah… I guess that means I should have entered this as a slip jig, since the UI here forces the time sig. to be 6/8 for a jig, 9/8 for a slip jig.
