LEG OF THE DUCK [2]. AKA and see "Jack Coen's Jig (2)," "Jim Conroy's Jig (1)," "Pride of the West." Irish, Jig. G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). The "Leg of the Duck" title for this tune comes from Declan Masterson's album "End of the Harvest" and seems ideosyncratic to that release. The first strain is very similar to that of the County Clare collected jig "Piper's Chair (The)."
