A Mike Dugger Tune

This is one of my favorite Jigs. Give it a try. I have a feeling you will be adding it to your list in no time. It is within the realm of possibility that Mike will walk right into one of your sessions. It would be so cool for him to walk into a strange pub and hear one of his pieces. I’ll get you some some more Dugger tunes in the future.

Mark

Mike named this tune for Rick Cunningham of Birmingham, Alabama. Rick was delighted with the tune and honored by the title, but to his consternation has discovered that the nickname has now firmly stuck and he can’t get rid of it, which is unfortunate, because he really hates being called "Alabama Rick." :) (Mike told me and Dirk this story himself.)

Alternate settings

This is closer to what I used on Torch & Fire.. second one with most of the ornamentation listed

This is a fair sketch of how I played this one on "Torch & Fire", it’s a bit different from the other transcription here.

I don’t know how the site handles different settings. I’m not a regular user, but notated this out for someone asking recently. When I did some searches, I landed here and found a different setting linked to the track list of my CD.. so hence I posted it.

Thanks

Thanks- haven’t been around here enough to know how to contribute reasonably.

The firkyfoodly version of the tune listed above, by the way, is more a demonstration of good places to firkyfoodle if your primary firkyfoodling implement is played with a plectrum and has at least 4 strings..
