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.

~ another take on this one but with a different B-part…

Fiddle fingering

what would you use to from c to c#?

“Another Jig Will Do” ~ without repeating the B-part…

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!

Top it Off

Hi Bea. One of the things you should do before submitting a tune is to check to see if it’s here already. This tune is fairly well known under the title "Another Jig Will Do":

https://thesession.org/tunes/276#setting13021

It’s not even advisable to add it as a setting on that page as it’s identical to one already there. You could add "Top it Off" as an alternative title, and tell us where you got the tune, etc. Sorry.

Another Jig Will Do, X:4

This is a fun slip jig, and I often play it after "The Rocky Road to Dublin." Beware of the accidentals.

Re: Another Jig Will Do

Error in bar 5, not enough notes!

Re: Another Jig Will Do

In setting 4? Yes, they missed the first A quarter note, the other settings have it
