ROBERT WHINHAM WEEK ~ duplication

I am sure I did the usual searches for this one before posting it… 😏 The previous is my take on it…
Here it is with less of me in the way, like the second ending…

"Me Mothers Jig" or "Whinham’s Jig" ~ alexboydell

The High Level Ranters recorded it in the LP" Four in a Bar " A great tune I have enjoyed playing it for several years.

# Posted on April 5th 2007 by alexboydell

The playing in Four in Bar is almost the same as the ABC in your comment (my simplified take above) but for:

They run the B and C parts together i.e. no repeat sign at the end of Bar 16,
& the following bars:

7 ~ | BdB c2 e |
13 ~ | gbg faf |
15 ~ | cde d2 B |
16 ~ | G2 g G2 B/c/ |
19 ~ | d^cd B2 G |
23 ~ | ded dba |

They play "Whinham’s Jig: with "Billy’s Jig "written by Willy Atkinson in honour of Billy Pigg.
