Not actually a jig, it’s a muineira. Awfully easy to play and to learn as well. It’s rather addicting even though it’s a simple melody hehe…

Is the site I got it from, but I’ve given the notation the way I play it. I don’t roll/cran everything, but that’s what I would do… I also play the dotted quarter notes as something like A2 A so I can get a breath in or whatnot. Fun fun for everyong! Galician music yaaaaaay, I shall post Sabelina sometime soon. Damn I love it!!

Cheers,
Armand
