Tune of the Day: Straight Jig No. 162

Traditional American tune

This tune is taken from Harding's All-Round Collection of Jigs, Reels and Country Dances, published in New York in 1905. The piece does not bear an actual title, and is designated simply as a “straight jig”, which is a type of old-time tune whose name is derived from the type of dance it was originally meant to accompany. It is not to be confused with “regular” jigs, which are always in triple meter (e.g. 6/8).
