I saw another thread on this, and I thought it might be good to start a separate one, as it's not so much performance-based, but more an instructional video.

 

It's not the whole tune, but it's the most sought-after part - the shuffle. Here it is, at normal speed, then slowed down a lot.

Even if you're not up to playing it yet, it's worth having a look. The feedback I've had from folk is that it's really quite simple, when it's shown broken down to its component parts, and played slowly.

 

The stripes at the centre of my bow are just there to help you follow bow direction changes :)

 

Enjoy and learn!dancing
