There are not enough multi-part slip jigs like this, that just go on and on. I like it.

…In case you’re wondering, I did mean I like *this tune*. But I suppose I also quite like the fact that there aren’t too many like it. The world would be a very strange place if all slip jigs had five parts.

Yes, it would be a five-part-slip-jig world and we’d all have three of everything ~ eyes, legs ~ 😏

Hey, please, anybody else out there have another version of this one? I’d love to see it and give it a try…

Re: Spatter The Dew

12 years too late, but Julie Fowlis plays a very similar 4 pt. slip jig in her Brògan Ùr Agam A-Nochd set that’s listed here as The Cat and the Dog https://thesession.org/tunes/9522
