video of Segeant Cahill’s
here’s a video of a very young whistle player playing this tune. From the videos out there, it seems like this tune must be one that is taught to children alot
here’s the young man playing it on a whistle
It’s in O’Neill’s-#834
Does anyone know the composer of this tune? I have a GCSE music practical on 16-4-15 and need to know the composers of tunes
Type of tune
This tune is a special type of jig, called a single jig. Usually classified by a long note (crotchet) followed by a short note (quaver) in each half-bar. Still 6/8 time though.
Tune to go with it
Hi everyone, if anyone can give me an easy-to-learn single jig to go with this one, that would be great! I need it for my SCT exam on 27th May 2015.
You could try Behind the Bush in the Garden- https://thesession.org/tunes/1888
Really a Jig?
Any chance this is really a slide?

I learnt this in the Joe Mooney summer school some 12 years ago.
