Learned this one from a very obscure collection of guitar tab. It’s the only place I’ve ever come across it. It sounds like it may be French Canadian.

“Nellie’s Jig” ~ rescued duplication, and from a life as ‘Songe Bob’s Jig’

Doh!

I learned this tune with some folks I played with at WSU.
I’ve been looking for you! Hi Richard! This is Mark Now I
vaguely remember the name. I’m just dredging up all the tunes
I can think of. Did we get from you, or from one the records the
folkdancers used play?

Amusingly I just got through corresponding with Hedy trying to
find you and Curt. Just curious what happened to you guys.

It must be contagious… 😏
