This is from the Instruction book that came with my Acorn whistle. It is listed as being traditional. I omitted the ornamentation given in the book, but it’s the usual stuff: separate 2 adjacent same-pitch notes with cuts, replace dotted quarters with rolls.

Fiddle fingering

what would you use to from c to c#?

Another Jiggledoo

An old friend of mine used to write the name of this tune down like this: ‘another jiggledoo’ which makes the tune much funnier, and gives it an even better reason for playing.

Another Jig Will Do

A related tune, perhaps from the same mould, is a Gan Ainm from the Petrie Collection, in which it is tune #102. The link is https://thesession.org/tunes/9829

this jig is aptly named: Any other jig will do!
