Like it a lot! Seems like there could be possibilities for 3rd and 4th parts if so inclined.

Hi Dan, thanks for your kind words. It seems to be quite difficult to begin a message's thread on this forum :)
The jig seems to be short (in fact it seems) but curiuously got eight phrases of which two of them are repeated twice with minor variations so that gives a total of ten phrases (not a little number of phrases for a jig). I'll be waiting for inspiration to compose more parts... who knows... you are a composer too and these things are so random.

Yeah, inspiration works in unpredictable ways... Some great tunes are indeed best left with two parts. I find that mastering the tune on the actual instrument is often the best way to keep the creative inertia going for additional parts when one drifts off into the realm of unscripted intuition.

Hi Glen, Can you print the full tune if possible, I only get two lines and the ends are missing, sounds a great tune on MP3. Thanks Bill
