A Slip Jig (9/8 time) from Virginia.
Favorite of 1 person
Al, you had mentioned the lack of 9/8 time slip jigs as well as 6/8 jigs. I only have one in my repertoire which was collected in Virginia and printed in 1782 - so here it is!
Very beautifully played Mark. Is that your 4 string gourd?
Mark, that was great. Was it the girls or the plantation that was old?
Rob- lol! If girls can be old, where does that leave me I wonder? =8-*
I think I've done listened to this about 15 times now...can't get enough of it ;)
If I can figure it out, it'd be the only 9/8 jig that I'd know.
Strum - its actually a cheap kit banjo strung with nylguts!
I imagine you could make an empty can of ham with a rubber band sound the same as well. sigh.... ;)
Noah - it sounds E flatish to me!
