GUEST,Sharon G Tune Req: An easy Treble Jig (30) RE: Tune Req: An easy Treble Jig 02 Feb 02


One more thing

Someone recommended St. Patrick's Day and the Orange Rogue for treble jigs. Caution! Don't use either of those tunes for a treble jig. Both are categorized as set dances- They have an irregular number of bars compared to a typical jig, usually in the "b" part of the tune (referred to by dancers as "the set")

St. Patrick's Day has specific steps which are executed the same way by all step dancers, and the Orange Rogue, Drunken Gauger and other jig time set dances have steps that are individually choreographed by Irish dance teachers to fit the melody and extra bars in the tunes.

Again, hope that's helpful Sharon
