WANTED: crazy 6/8 / jig - the wackier and chromaticer the betterer

Hi C&F, been a while since I posted here. I would really like to find a weird and wacky, out-there jig, or something that conforms to a 6/8 time signature. Aside from blasting jigs and reels on the tin whistle, I also play the clarinet. I particularly like dipping my toes into klezmer. A crazy i...

Re: Name that tune mega thread

Excellent, thanks again. To be honest, it won't hurt not to know all the tunes. I can BS that I'm hanging back to give the set more variety of instruments or something ;)

Re: Name that tune mega thread

I've got two, count them, TWO, new sets to learn this week. If I could get some ID's on these, much obliged, bigly praise, holy hand grenade and so forth. In this first set, I know the first tune is the Kesh. Ain't no ITM'er worth their salt can't play that one. But the rest: familiar but nameless a...

Re: Name that tune mega thread

Bringing this thread back from the dead with a new tune to ID. I only know the A part, vaguely remembered from a recording I no longer have. The audio is me playing one of this gentleman's excellent flutes.

Re: fun slip jig recomendations?

The Rocky Road To Dublin is great fun to play: http://www.thesession.org/tunes/display/593 Somewhere along the way I picked up a third part to this tune which is terrific, but I don't know where to tell you to find it now :( It's in O'Neill's Music of Ireland but, so far as I can tell, not on www.t...

Re: Merlin aluminium high D

I got this whistle through the post the other day. A lot pricier than the Tony Dixon that used to be my mainstay D whistle, but worth it. The E and D holes are surprisingly large, but it's no great shakes to get used to them. Main difference I've noticed is that you have to blow a fair bit harder th...
