Thanks for posting I came across a bunch of old banjo books from the 70's that had couple old books of irish jigs but it didnt explain much on right hand techniques.

To riff off of Stephan's line...I love playing jigs and slip jigs (9/8)...I use several approaches... some I fingerpick...Snowy Path being my most recent addition... where I work to play the melody line straight up...some I fingerpick rolling over the chords... some I "pile drive"...like "Calliope House"...where I downstroke hard on the 1 & 4...and some I "wham"... turning my right hand loose to do up and down strokes... the last I learned/discovered on our trip to Ireland and Scotland in '16... doing every tune out of open G tuning... regardless of key...as a typical Celtic "set" is 3 tunes...changing key with each new tune.... sometimes time signatures too...no time to change tuning or banjos
