Subject: Tune Add: THE REEL OF HARDEN and THE SCOTS WRIGGLE
There were a lot of accidents with those new fangled reels (see X:1) with that extra eighth note at the end of every measure and a lot of limbs were broken slipping around it or hopping over it, and they were called hop jigs or slip jigs because of that. Then a wise Scot figured out you could just wiggle around it, like in the 2nd dance below.
