The Boy In The Wood (jig)

Essentially the same as "Health to the Ladies" a.k.a. "Irishman’s Heart to the Ladies" in G instead of A. Played in F on Open Hearth.

I forgot to say I transposed that tune from F to G, to make it playable on the D flute

That is similar, but different.

I disagree. I’ve been actually playing a very similar G major setting as "Health to the Ladies."

I heard this tune from Paddy Glackin’s playing.
