For enthusiasts of early banjo

To compare with Tim's Lion and Beacon Jig, here is Buckley's version, called 'Jig from French Quadrilles'.

Yes, this tune really makes several appearances. Source material is "Hole In The Wall" from Ryan's Mammoth Collection (pg. 15). I am working up the 1887 version, but not settled on a tempo. The Green 1865 clearly indicates a slow tempo, so I thought I'd start there. The two 16th note triplet figures with grace notes makes me favor the slower tempo for 1887. That gives a lot of hang times on "John Wild's". Hmmm...still experimenting. Your up tempo version sounds good. I think Clarke B has a version somewhere, but I forgot where, and I remember it moving right alaong.

PS...I still think M 9 and M 10 are a misprint (no B note).

You mean the chords at the start of the B sction? I love those chords! Tricky to play, but they sound great. But you might be right :-)
