Subject: RE: Tune Req: An easy Treble Jig
I dont know what instrument you play but if you play guitar, mandolin or 5 string banjo, you will find ROCKY ROAD TO DUDLIN (as it appears in Allen's Irish Fiddler) the easiest to finger. The three note phrases (they sound like triplets to the ear but, for reasons of convenience, they're written as 1/8 notes) can be gracefully slured with a simple hammer and pull-off motion.
