It's sort of OK - I haven't got any of the ornaments off properly, but I could likely have a bash.

Morrison's jig. It fell apart a little under the pressure of a video camera running unfortunately, but here it is.

Apologies for the maniacal stare part way through - I was checking the framing in the monitor screen.

For once, participating. LOL. Thanks for the party. 😁

Well, I look horrible in that video but that is not what is important. Anyone else hate the way they look from the right side playing the violin. Double chin/Do you get neck tension thing.....

The hair looked way cooler in my mind. Here is a picture of me rocking long hair back in the day.

New one I just this minute learned, heard it on the Irish holiday advert and thought that would be a good one to do, good enough to advertise Ireland good enough for paddys day

https://youtu.be/aFL0vkqXctk

Pretty poor playing but it will get better with a bit of polish, the double stops in the first repeats by the way are intentional, was going to do them all the way through but thought I may not make it to the end if I tried.

Edgar and I are still struggling, but had to give these a go! 
My versions of Morrison's, The Butterfly & The Swallowtail. 

THANK YOU, @JimandThomas , for starting this Wonderful Party!
