HAYMAKERS JIG [1]. Irish, Jig (6/8 time). G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. See note in "Annotation:Haymaker's Jig (2)." The tune seems to be a single jig, obviously employed for the dance called "The Haymakers" from which it takes its name. A similar melody is Montreal fiddler Joseph Allard's "Reel/Gigue des sucres."
