Irish Jig Set

February 17, 2020 5:34 PM

Three jigs I've been working on recently - Miller of Glanmire, The Drowning at Bruckless, and Bill Harte's. Two tenor guitars (a recent Nigel Forster, and a 1943 Epiphone archtop), and banjo (Ode Juniper).

It's been a while since I've posted any tunes here, but have been making lots of irish music IRL. These three are played probably a bit too slowly, but I kinda like the way they turned out. This was also an experiment in using DAW software on the Ipad - I used Auria, with my Zoom H2 recorder as the audio interface. A little bit of eq and compression in Reaper at the end (I can't get the hang of the Auria eq interface just yet).

This is lovely! I really like the dynamic and harmonic shifts in the accompaniment. Not to mention, its at a speed at which I might be able to learn a thing or two. Cheers!

Thanks TheCoug! this was pretty rough and ready, and if you listen close you can hear a pretty bad goof in the second tune when I magically add an extra beat or two to the bar. Gah, pobody's nerfect I guess. :)

Goofs let you know it's the real thing!

Very nice! I really like the transition into the last tune.
