THE RATCATCHER'S JIG

I am thinking of the feline variety, and not the human one once found in the employ of municipal hygiene departments. Either way--a jig. Please enjoy.

Nice tune!....I didn't map it out.....but, that could be a new choice for the "Highland Fling" for dancers......has a nice undertone to it with a very nice flow!......Well done again lad!
And Happy Holidays to you!

Indeed I have finally played this one for a group of Highland dancers. It fits the part of a fling perfectly, as said by AWPIPER. I really like this one because it is, at least to me, a light and easy jig that one could quite comfortably just get up and dance to in the middle of somebody playing it with no choreography at all. It has a great melody and it is very well done!

Could you post a midi? I don't learn tunes too well without hearing them and I'm on a mac (which means no bww for me).

Thanks.
