This is a lovely, energizing slip jig with four parts, but the B part is just A part played an octave higher. We can't do that on the MO, of course, so I've just put the A part in again. Also, in the D part, I had to "fold" the first three notes down an octave. It doesn't sound too bad.

Here's a nice performance of it on fiddle and guitar:

You can play along with it to practice.

I like this one!

I am trying to get a collection of lead sheets for tunes for "sessions" at the Snoqualmie Taproom - I was quite bummed (as the "landlord" of the Taproom) that the Duvall Grill, 15 miles up the road in our little rural valley, has put up a notice on thesession.org for a session at their place. Nothing says there can't be one in each little town though!

It belatedly occurred to me that this can be played without "folding" in the key of C, if you can get the high F. Sounds pretty good, too. Of course, I still have to keep the C part in the first octave, so it's just a repetition of the A part. But the D part gets played as written.

Yes, C is better than D here it seems.  The veins still stand out on my neck, but I am getting better at the high F.  What tempo would this be played at typically?

I put the linked performance on the stopwatch and did the math, and it comes out to 125 bpm, with the dotted quarter getting one beat (3 beats per measure).

Edit: FWIW, I noticed that the fiddler was playing FGF for every occurrence of FDF in the first and third lines.  Actually, I thought that made the melody a little more interesting.

As with all ITM, ornamentations may be liberally added, and different instruments will sometimes favor different ornaments. I tend to roll the F# in the FDF phrase, so it plays FAFDF. The A is approximate, depending on which hole I roll with.

OK, anybody take a crack at guitar chords for this one? The video is interesting, really need to slow it down to see if we can grab the chords here.

... the video is in D, so the first 8 bars are predominantly a D chord ... something like D D D A7 D G A7 D and repeat ... then he does  a "clever bit" down to an Em, but his fingers are so long and the camera's waving about so much I can't quite see what he's doing  Sad then A7 D ... more "twiddle" Em "twiddle" D and repeat. The "twiddle" probably incorporates a derivative of B7 and/or Bm7 and/or F# or F#m but I'd have to hack about for a bit on the box to make a better guess ... and it's late.

Edit : check out http://www.traditionalmusic.co.uk/session-guitar-tab/foxhunters_jig.htm ... that should do it for you Smiley

Indeed, that kind of shows it all!  Thanks!  Now all I need is a stove pipe hat!

Coming back to this one! Some edits to the tune to reflect the way I hear it, and guitar chords added.  Got to record this next with guitar and ocarina!
