GUEST,Ian Pittaway Jig, hornpipe, reel - difference? (45) RE: Jig, hornpipe, reel - difference? 20 Jun 06

Jig - 6/8 time - goes | Diddle-e diddle-e | Diddle-e diddle-e |

Slip jig - 9/8 time - goes | Diddle-e diddle-e diddle-e | Diddle-e diddle-e diddle-e |

You could do the same for the rest, but the best thing is to buy a CD that has the type of tune labelled next to the tune title. Many CDs of Irish music do this. Listen to the rhythm - that's always the thing - that goes with the type of tune. The rhythm is most important because these are essentially types of dance music, even if they are played to be listened to or at a pace no one could dance to!
