Scottish jig by Dagger Gordon

I’ve not been submitting many tunes lately but I’ll be rectifying that. there’s so much out ther to share. πŸ™‚

This is actually a Scottish tune composed by that wonderful mandolin player, David (Dagger)Gordon. Inchindown is about four miles north of Invergordon in Easter Ross.

I’m not suggesting that it sounds Irish πŸ™‚ or otherwise but would still fit in very well in an Irish set or session.

Very pretty melody, John, a keeper for sure. Keep ‘em coming.

Irishizing the tune πŸ™‚

I don’t hear this tune as distinctly Scottish sounding—more just a beautiful jig. But a few (fairly obvious) "variations" help bring out its charms.

This tune would work well as a treble jig for step dancers.

Just a personal little rant here.

God, I despise those little smiley faces. How insipid!

End of rant.

Nice tune, though.

*hic* scuse me

It’s a lovely jig, and Irishy enough as submitted. I’m wondering if Will added those hic-ups to give it a slightly inebriated feeling.

Actually, it reminds me a bit of Boys of Lough Gowna, which I also use as a treble, and the bowed triplets go well with the dancer’s steps.

Uh huh… sure, Will… pour me another one… ok? πŸ˜‰

(Sorry about the "insipid" smiley face thingy there, Richard.)

Also known as "Brown Ale" …

Liz Doherty plays this as Brown Ale in a nearly identical version on "Last Orders" (All In Good Time - Brown Ale - Miss Sarah McFadyen).

Maybe that’s where the inebriated feeling comes from. πŸ™‚

I’ll add the extra name so the set’s complete in the database.
