Jig For Yvette

Slip jig composed by Bríd Harper. It appears on her solo album (see https://thesession.org/recordings/5073).

I transcribed it using this youtube video as I don’t have the album. It’s the first time through with the repeats written out as there are some substantial changes, especially in the B part.

It was kind of tricky to get written down and took me a while, but well worth it as it’s a beautiful tune and I wanted to learn it!

A transposed version with some variations to help it work, for those who are not too hot on G dorian.
