I pestered Donough to write up a transcription of “The Honesty Bar” off Michael McGoldrick’s *Wired*, and here it is.

Hi im just checking is this definitely a jig?

Re: The Honesty Bar

Well, it’s one of those hybrids… The A-part in is 6/8 and the B and C-part are in 9/8. There are some tunes in mixed time signatures.
