OK - so..... here's where I am atm with the Kesh Jig.... still messing about with it, and still not 100% happy - but - as ever - it's just a measure of where I am - and I know where I want to go with it.... feature=youtu.be

I also well appreciate that it kind of "breaks" the triplet-feel of a traditional jig - but - know what - I kind of like the outcome ! LOL   If we all played it exactly the same - well - there would be no point.... hahahaha.    Enjoy my efforts !

I seriously recommend not copying my mistakes.

Thank you @coolpinkone  - as I said elsewhere - I had such a bad time last Sunday on SJ, I felt so bad, not to mention, embarrassed, I HAD to put a stake-in-the-ground just to say - "this is really where I am atm with this tune"  

Thank you for listening  !  thumbs-upthumbs-upthumbs-up

@BillyG I love that "stake in the ground."  

I do that too.  You are doing so great with the variety of the music that you are playing and for how long...and all your Bill charm.

You are a treasure to all of us... and pretty fun too!!!

Exactly. Becomes more interesting if everyone makes it their own. Of course, only to a certain extent. Needs to be the same piece.

  Ha !    You have no idea how many times something I'm playing "morphs" into a different tune !     It has become especially difficult recently with that old Scottish tune "Comin' thru' the Rye" with it's renewed popularity thanks to Bear McCreary's fine arrangement in the Outlander series - 

Note for note it is virtually identical to one of the tunes used for Auld Lang Syne.    The only difference is in the timing.......    If I actually manage to disambiguate them when playing and keep both tunes clean - they make a nice little two-piece set to play one after the other - but when one changes into the other halfway through that's not so good !!!!   roflol

LOL @coolpinkone - just play Auld Lang Syne, but change the timing of the notes and your 95% of the way there !!!!
