Thanks mouse, hoping I can get a few more to join in this time. I have been told this is whats called a double jig, but I dont have a clue if thats correct, as I never heard of one before.

@stringy -

VERY COOL piper tune!  

Love your cap, too!

Great Party idea, but I've got nothing that fits it at the moment.  I'll see if I can come up with something, though. 

 

Think the reason you don't hear about 'Double' Jigs - it's the normal, most common type - so we just call it a "Jig".   It's in 6/8 time, 2 groups of 3 eighth notes in a bar - feel a 2 pulse groove per bar. 

'Single' Jigs are still 6/8, but 2 groupings of a quarter note + an eighth.  'Old Scottish' Single Jigs can have a dotted quarter note AND a quarter/eighth grouping, can even have bars with just 2 dotted quarter notes - still feel a type of 2 pulse groove per bar. 

'Slip' Jigs are 9/8 and have 3 grouping of notes (3 eighths and/or quarter + eighth) - feel a 3 pulse groove per bar. 

'Slides' are in 12/8 time - but with 4 of any combination of the other jig-type note groupings - feel a 4 pulse groove per bar.  

 

I'm so lazy, I hate trying to remember what 'type' tunes are.  Drives me especially crazy that there are some terms used for dancing, but not for the dance 'music' - gets confusing & I'd rather just play what I hear. 🙄

Emily you are a mine of information, very interesting info, you have a deep knowledge of theory no doubt about it😁

Sharon look forward to you joining in, your tunes are always quality, and cant wait to see what you pick.

@stringy -

I'm never sure if I'm helping to make anything easier for anyone to understand, or harder... probably the latter, but I'm hoping I'll get better at it. 

I remember when I started out with my new violin & found the irishtune.info Rhythm Definitions - thought, "what the... #$%&*!?" 😖 

...been on a mission ever since. (lol) 

Btw, found something for this party - gimme a few days. 😊

Emily you curiosity is aroused about your choice, I am glad you're joining in can't wait to hear it. 

I think your info on musical matters is greatly appreciated by all on here, keep it up.

Katie, I am surprised you have time for violin if you have an allotment, I look forward to your choice.

ere’s mine.  I guess Indian Summer isn’t really in Summer, but I figured “Summer” is in the title, so I’d be ok smile

Got it from The Session site (added the viola part).  It’s in D minor.  I think I was drawn to it subconsciously because the 1st 6 notes are the same beginning notes of the Bach Double 2nd Violin part.

Very good video, that's a new tune to me. It's amazing how many tunes are out there that are good tunes that you have never heard before.

Thank you for putting this together and posting
