The request for a ‘jig’ put mine on hold, but it was identical except I didn’t notate the rolls on E… 😉

Re: Horse Keane’s

Beautiful tune and so groovily and gorgeously played Jimmy Keane. Thank you for sharing this talented gift of yours!

Re: Horse Keane’s

Brilliant - but not for the fearful and players with uncertain technique! Still one can always "put in a harmony" as Joni Mitchell sang in (He played real good)"For Free" - from LADIES OF THE CANYON.

Re: Horse Keane’s

Fixed X:6, which was a complete mess.
