I picked this up from Karen Tweed’s playing, slight variation on the A part where instead of |BAG Bcd|edc efg, it’s |BGG Bcd|ecc efg, and likewise the next time ‘round, although it’s a trivial difference really.
I have a recording of an early live concert by the Bothy Band. They play Jackson’s Jig in the first set. Matt Molloy is with them.
is from the playing of Paul O’Shaughnessy:
As usual, he plays some really cool variations; here’s a particularly nice one of the A part for instance:
BAG Bcd|ecc Gce|dBG DGB|cBc ABc|
BAG Bcd|ecc efg|daf gdB|cAF G2c||
X: 5 "Jackson’s Jig"
"Call the Set III"
Taken from ‘A Fine Selection of Over 200 Irish Traditional Tunes for Sessions’, compiled by David Speers with a Forward by Matt Cranitch. This version, collected 30 or so years ago, was called The Humours of Kesh. I hadn’t come across it before - nice tune!
Thanks to gian marco for producing the version (X:1) as I hear it.
I’ve simply taken his abc and re-formatted as posted here, to avoid it printing out all the repeated lines.
