Thread Name: what's a rant?
Subject: RE: what's a rant?
No, not a jig. Rant tunes can also be played as reels, polkas or hornpipes depending how you emphasise the notes.
Cheviot rant, Flowers of Edinburgh, Soldiers Joy, are examples, played not too fast so that you can get the steps in (4 dance steps instead of 2 walk steps).
