Compliments To The Boys Of The Lough

Lovely jig composed by New England fiddler Frank Ferrel learnt from the playing of the late Buddy MacMaster off the Heart of Cape Breton comp. You can check out Ferrel’s site here: http://frankferrel.com/ He has loads of youtube videos as well.

This tune is not a fan of pick-up notes on the repeats so it’s friendly if your not keen on them yourself. I’ve shown only some crucial bowing. Keep the rolls short and aggro and you’re good. You might play those high e’s in the first measure of the B part as a unison with the pinkie finger for a more Scottish feel. Cumbersome name. Great tune.
