HUMORS OF BALLINAFAD [4]. AKA - "Humours of Baile-na-faed." Irish, Jig (6/8 time). G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB'CC'. This Donegal collected tune has some similarities to Canon Goodman's Munster jig of the same name (for which see "Humors of Ballinafad (3)"), but they differ significantly in tonic and mode, and, in the second strain, countour.

Additional notes

Source for notated version: - "I got this tune from Proinseas mac Suibhne, who had if from Robert Sproule, a fiddler of Druim-mor in Cill-mac-nEain [Ed. County Donegal]. It is well known over the parish of Cill-mac-nEanin." [Padraig Mac Aodh O'Neill].
