Colin McGuire's © Rónán Regan
Rónán composed this jig for a good friend and neighbour growing up, Colin McGuire around July 2009. Colin is living in Ohio in the US these days with his wife Trish and two sons and is a great photographer. He comes home to Ireland during the Galway Arts Festival every year.
Breakdown of Colin McGuire's Jig
The first part of the tune starts on the E note and stays within the octave. The first part of the tune presents many opportunities for playing / practicing rolls.
Parts 1 & 2 Together
Time to practice the first and second part of the tune individually before putting the full tune together.
The second part of the tune unexpectedly goes down to the base which is challenging but adds depth / colour to the tune.. Again their are plenty of opportunities for playing your rolls.
Parts 3 & 4
Colin McGuire's Jig is practiced here slowly. Enjoy!
