    Great jig, Lawrence, and you have really nailed the rhythm here, I would say. Thanks too for posting the abc notation.

    Fine playing Gornamona, I really like the rhythm you’ve got going there too.
    This is a great jig but the title reminds me of the city near where I live which is not so great!
    I usually get my tunes from, abcnotation or musescore but I might start going through old threads here too, there must be more than 2000 of them now.

    what a wild jig, with notes raining all over the place like bullets from a Thompson, played to perfection, dodging all of them like Neo.

    Right here's my go of this lovely wee jig - played on the Frank Tate tenor guitar that I bought from Lawrence last week!

    Wonderful Jill, dashingly played. How did you get it to fly at that tempo?!

    It take an Irish lass to deliver an Irish jig, Jill. Lovely controlled playing on that tenor.
  14. Frithjof
    That’s a warm sounding tenor guitar you got from Lawrence. Needless to say, that you play it seemingly effortless.
