A little bit of a switch up on a normal jig with the triplets

Hey I really enjoyed your tune.
It would be a great piece to hear Gordon Duncan play etc.

I thought the 3rd part was a bit 'stop, start' if you know what I mean. like for me it didnt flow the same as the other parts did.
That aside... I'd still like to hear Gordon play it :)

The only suggestion I would offer would be to slow the tune down a "touch"....150BPM does not allow for the expression I think you were striving for........at 120-130 a band could play some great expression.

I happen to like the slow down.....it gives the drum line or group playing seconds to it a chance to shine thru.......Brilliant chune!.

I tried it out, and I must say the triplets on top of the regular 6/8 triplet structure, when played fast, gave a neat slur sound. Always been there, yet a new sound. I almost thought of those fast triplets as an embellishment, certainly at 150 bpm. Maybe Mark's 130 bpm would be more ideal, but no slower!

actually should be in around the 120 - 130 bpm just sped it up for laughs and forgot to set it back before uploading
