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

One of the earliest-arranged jigs for 5-string banjo: St. Patrick's Day. My first experience with playing this tune was based on Frank B. Converse's arrangement from his "Green" 1865 banjo method. This arrangement is how I've been playing it lately in a bit of a modern clawhammer sense.

Hey Noah - seeing your recent posts inspired me to work on a jig I abandoned last year, and finally got it at least well enough to share among friends.

This is Marcus Martin's Jig, from Jason Cade and his band Hog-eyed Man.

I like the idea of finding and learning traditional American jigs, and this a rare - but lovely - example. All it needs is a second part.

Sounds great, Stefan, and an interesting jig, too. Wouldn't mind learning some American jigs. Started researching a couple awhile back and then life got in the way.
