    I know what you mean, Bertram!

    For some reason, I never learnt this tune. You guys just don't want to stop putting things on my to-do list, do you?

    I'm currently practising triplets in jigs, so Habbits's video gives me some starting points. Thanks!

    Used to play this with the late Joe Nobling (above). Rest In Peace, Joe.

    Great versions by BHabbits and Mike.
    I like jigs and consider it worth to read the discussion of 2009.

    As promised a few posts up in this thread, here is my update on my 2014 recording, using the same arrangement by Evelyn, but played with more of a live feeling. This is how we play the tune at our weekly gatherings.

    I'm playing it on mandolin with tenor guitar rhythm and mandocello bass line. High tremolo harmony on second mandolin coming in on the second time through.

    Suzuki MC-815 mandocello
    Vintage Viaten tenor guitar
