I learned Paddy on the Railroad about 37 years ago from Gerry Milnes in Elkins, WV. This tune forced me to learn clean, precise triplets-that's about half the tune! I teach it on my Truefire Channel, which you can check out for a FREE week in the folder of Fancy Clawhammer Banjo Tunes here:

Other tunes that are triplet intensive?

Gee, I only play that many triplets, or ornaments, when I play Paddy on the Railroad, on the tin whistle, at Irish sessions.
