Aloha everyone,

I cranked out another one, this one a happier tune.  A jig is a dance set in 4/4 time, from what I understand.  Let me know what y'all think, please.

EDIT: This is actually a reel, so I changed the name to iBud's Reel.

Aloha everyone,

For those of you that wish a challenge, I upped the ante just a bit.  This is too difficult for me to play, but maybe one of y'all can take it on.  Its not too difficult, but has some string crossings that are difficult for me.  Let me know what y'all think.

 Nice, @iBud. One small point.  Jigs are in 6/8 time.  Reels, hornpipes, mazurkas and highland tunes, however, are in 4/4 time.  

A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort. ~Herm Albright

Aloha @Uzi,

Thanks for the head's up. I'll just have to call it something else.  I like the reel or hornpipe idea.  I think I'll call it iBud's Reel! cool

Did you check out the advanced version?  It'll be a while before I can play that one.  My problem is that I can hear it in my head and know how to use MuseScore to score it, but I'm not advanced enough on my fiddle to actually play it.  facepalm  I'll get there one day.  I'll make it one of my goals.

Aloha again everyone,

I posted a YouTube video of me playing iBud's Reel, in case you're interested in my level at this time.  I've been playing for less than three months and didn't do too badly, but it could've been better.  I hope y'all like it.
