Here is another tune from my book that I’m revising. A slightly simplified version replaces a couple of rolls and an idiosyncratic little walk up on the repeat of the B section.
I’ve been penciling these changes in for my studio students. Now you can see what I do.
The tune is also called Roaring Jelly, I believe.
Someone said this is a favorite tune of Mac users. I don’t know what’s up with that.
And, finally, here is a pdf for better results printing: Smash the Windows
This is a jig I wrote recently. I like to play it in a medley with Connaughtman’s Ramble and The Northern Jig.
You can download the Dutchman’s Pipe pdf.
Inspired by Liz Carroll’s playing of The Northern Jig on the In Play album, I use a long linear figure to connect the parts from low high as she does, or high to low. It’s a genius move.
Two bits, four bits, six bits, a dollar. These bits were parts of a dollar, pieces of eight. Each one was worth about 12.5 cents. When one of them got really worn, you had a Ten Penny Bit.
Download the tune as a pdf file.
This jig is a popular session tune. Another such jig is Smash the Windows.
