    So, i'm on day 19 of my 1001 Irish tunes... somehow this one was more challenging than it should have been lol but I got it done and i'm pretty happy about how it turned out. Link below.

    Very clean and fast - here's what the tune sounds like with some lilt in there rather than played straight:


    2018 Girouard Concert oval A
    2015 JP "Whitechapel" tenor banjo
    1969 Martin 00-18

    Thanks Ralph.

    been playing that tune for at least 30 years as part of ceilidh sets, albeit more like the version Jill posted except not as subtle.

    You can't be too subtle with dancers :-)

    Thanks for the reference! I'm sure to some degree I'll always be a bluegrass player... and I'll probably always sound like one to some extent but maybe by the end of all this all get the feel down :-D
