This is one of me favourites, a great jig altogether and sits quite nicely on the auld tenor guitar! Here's the ABC's from thesession.org:

Nice Jill. The little parlor guitar has big sound. I especially like the clarity of the single courses. Is it tuned like a 'dola or an OM? or ? Also wondered what gauges the strings are. Thanks for posting.
It's a tenor guitar, 21 inch scale length so similar to my short scale Triple X tenor banjo. Tuned GDAE - the gauges are roughly .046/.036/.024/.015
Jill, I'm finally back 'home' with no grandchildren, and have a couple of weeks to learn some new tunes! I'm working on this one RIGHT NOW!!!
Awesome - can't wait to hear your version! It's such a jaunty wee tune!
That is a great sound from that wee tenor, Jill. Another (have I said this before?) cracking tune!
I'm so delighted with the volume and tone out of it - I'd read on another thread in the main forum where someone didn't want a 4 string tenor because he thought they were "thin" sounding - he's obviously not heard a Tenor Tone!
Nicely done Jill. I bet that tune sounds good on the banjo too.
Aye, it's a proper cracker on the banjo!
just picked this real likeable jig up today, played on a great value, cheap Ozark tenor, a nice change from the mandolin, though it will take a while to get use to the extra stretch.
That Ozark sounds fine here, G, and your playing of it is does not show much in the way of having problems with the extra scale length. it is a cracking wee tune and good to see it back in the group again after a year's absence!
Thanks, Gortnamona. That's the same Ozark tenor that I have, and they are really great value! Presumably you have yours tuned GDAE (as do I). I like the triplets you've thrown in. Have to give that tune a go.
thanks John and Martin, for £200 i'm baffled how they manage it, solid top in all. i stuck a bone nut and saddle on and went up to 47 on the g string, seems to work well, these single string jobs are sore on fingers though.
Nice, gortna! The guitar really does have a nice tone.
