Genre: Fiddle/Celtic/Irish  Style: Other  Key: D  Tuning: Standard Open G (gDGBD)  Difficulty: Intermediate

Notes: Originally known as 'Jackson's Victory' (while he was still popular) and later changed to the 'Eighth of January', we also know this favorite tune as the melody or "air" to the 'Battle of New Orleans'. Notice the Celtic-sounding drones and raggy syncopation I have put into the second part to give it more lift. I use a lot of staccoto-single-string work in the second part to capture the melody down the neck, but it could also be played an octave higher in a more legato-melodic style.

Sorry I missed you Jack, the weather prevented me from getting to see my old friends. I did my two gigs and got out of town as quickly as possible. I'm sorry I missed you.

Hi Tom, I've left NYC because of the pandemic and gave up my two leases temporarily (I was told I could come back at the same rent) I thought. When I tried to go back about six months ago they tripled both leases. That is the end of the Landlord Criminal activity.They both told me to take it to court knowing it would cost me thousands of dollars. So! I'm in NJ at my home and doing very well with Zoom lessons. I apparently am not the only private teacher who faced this treachary but ever onward...Happy Holiday Tom...Jack

Jack, oy, that's mad, and I'm sorry to hear that you couldn't go back. Good to hear that you have a roof over your head in NJ and that you're still teaching. Zoom, nice one! Stay in touch and blessings to you! - Tom
