In your absence, you being suspended and all. I did think to write you quietly on this, and have, but you can’t make the necessary adjustments until you are re-instated, after your ‘suspension’… 😏

This has got to be, personal opinion, one of the worst slip jigs I’ve ever stumbled across and played… I won’t be repeating that mistake…

Further on this Liz Carroll tune, and this is just me voicing an opinion, considering it another of her worst efforts. She has produced a few nice melodies, and also some real dogs. This slip jig is cack, twisted, all over the place and rambling… But that’s just my opinion. With her fiddling she could make dog shight smell like roses… 😎 Don’t smack me, me glasses!!!

I’ll second that, ‘c’.

Have you heard her play it lads? or are you just going by the dots….
