Notes: An Irish jig transformed into a CH banjo reel. It is normally played in D-mixolydian (D scale with C-natural), but I tabbed it in "triple-C" tuning, so you'd capo up one step to get to D. The triple C tuning seem good for the drones of these piping tunes. Adding extra beats to the jig to change it from 6/8 time to 4/4 time "americanizes" the tune. One BHO member even said it seems "bluesy".
