The Niamhlín

New jig - I didn't really compose it - one day it just came to me in a flash and I just grabbed a pen and jotted it down.

Pronounced The "Neev-ling" for those who need to know.

your jig The Niamhlín (whether you consider it composed or not) is good. i like the change in the end phrase on the second part of the tune and then the 2nd change in the 4th part. hastily typed up for .bww format though eh? there seems to be an over abundance of high-G grace notes following high-A's. but that aside, nice bouncy feel to it

Hey, just a few comments.

To me it doesn't feel like it's finished.
I think it could be an absolute cracker if you made it more flowing. To me there are too many stop starts that make it predictible. If you cut out some of the crotchets and make a few quavers or runs I think you have a really good base there to make something special.

If you want to have another go at it let me know and I'd love to hear another version of it.

I spent 5 minutes just making a few changes to the first part to show you what I had in mind, but if you don't like it I'm not worried, just wanted to give you an idea of what I was talking about.
