January 29, 2018: Tomorrow I’m getting on a flight to visit Ireland (so excited!), so I’ve been brushing up on my jigs. Recently learned these three particularly twisty ones–“The Return Home,” “Cahal’s Jig,” and “The Mystery Inch.”

Stay tuned for my new 7-part video lesson series on Mandolins Heal the World all about the Irish jig. We’ll be looking at the right hand jig picking pattern, Irish triplets, and melodic variations for 7 traditional tunes. Subscribe here for full access: https://mandolinshealtheworld.com/

MM hats and stickers are available at my bandcamp page here: https://davidbenedict.bandcamp.com/merch

Also, you can contact me through my website for a free copy of the tab/notation transcription of the solos in this video: http://davidbenedictmusic.com/contact/

And as always, tune in next week for more Mandolin Mondays! Until then…

Happy Picking!
