"The Cape North Jig"

Here’s another in the line of offspring from "The Haughs"…

😏 Catching up with neglected connections…

"The Haughs Of Cromdale" ~ 18th Century ~ ealiest notation

Respect and thank you to Nigel Gatherer…

"earliest" ~ I am at a confusion as letters keep disappearing after posting… Hey!, ‘r’ again, that has happened a few times. Maybe I’m too light with that key or something on our mechanical keyboard? ~ or maybe it is just me… 😏

DAMN! ~ "The Cape North Jig" NOT g minor!!! ~ D DORIAN!!! 😏

Apologies, I was very semi-conscious this morning and am just waking up… I can’t believe I did that…

G DORIAN!!!

G Dorian (not g minor)

Too late for the sheetmusic, but interesting midi…

I must have been blind when I chose the key. I guess I really do need those reading glasses… 😎

I quite like the minor take on it, in which case this could be ‘a minor’…

Duh, duh, duh, guh, guh, aaah, slap, slap, slap ~ I need a long walk in the countryside, fresh cold air… Would it were in the Highlands National Park… Maybe it’s stress and worry because the car’s back in the garage, for the second time in the last week… Nnnnnnn!!! πŸ™

"The Cape North Jig" ~ SHEETMUSIC = 1 flat, not 2

For those reading the dots, the normal take on this is right in the ABC’s, G Dorian, but the sheetmusic took quickly, before I saw my mistake, and the key signature should be just one flat, Bb only…but it is ‘interesting’ with two too ~ as minor…

"The Cape North Jig" ~ as I’ve been taking it ~ low ~ D Dorian
