Sorry to start two new jigs at once, but this theme suggested itself too and it seemed a shame to stifle its little voice!

I know exactly where I want this tune to go next. This is so frustrating. ;) And so cool when someone else comes up with something totally different that works.

This is shaping up great! I just took off the surplus g in the last bar so it repeats properly. If you guys don't add the next two bars soon I'm gonna jump in!

My bad, cheers.

I'm gagging to start the second part, but it's not my turn.  :-X Jump away ...

OK, I've left this hanging on a g3 for now, but I expect you to hack it back to a g2 and add a quaver to take the tune in whichever direction it wants to go.

I didn't take the bait. In fact it sounds like it's taking a breather.

Over to you Simon! Care to finish up the last 4 bars?

Also, I'd love to hear where you were going to take the tune for the B part, how about taking it a third stretch with your alternative B part? The Mop, if you will.

btw, that was just a working title, but we can stick with it if everybody likes it.

I suspect Martin didn't originally intend this to be the actual title, but it's kind of stuck, for me anyway. :)

I like it, but the name has to go. If you can use the words "gay" or "maggot" in the title, I think that'd help. ;)

On second thoughts, "Mopty Mopty Mop" could be a bit much.
Just "Mopty Mop" wouldn't look out of place in an Irish tune book.

Oops! Sorry, I was trying a couple of different things and took a version before the chords. Actually, I don't like the chords as the midi thumps them out as you know. Is it possible to have "silent" chords on the midi, only there for the printout?

I've played this through a few times last night at home, I ended up simplifying the 8th bar, but I think that's due to my lack of skills as a player and a deadening E string rather than anything wrong in the tune. Overall I'm really pleased with what we've created and I suspect I'll change the odd note through playing to fit what I can do personally on a fiddle.

I've stuplidly left my earphones at home today so I can't listen to anything until I get back.

Let's call it a wrap with "Mopty Mop".
