Planxty Johnston

From Catchin’ the Tune by the Irish Tradition.
I’m not sure "jig" is really what I’d call this, more like a fast march. The long rest in the B part is a good time to grab a sip before you have to start playing the tune again.

Guitar version

Dick Gaughan plays this on the album, Coppers and Brass.

D major

This is a lovely jig, fits well on pipes and whistle in this key.
