OAK STICK [1], THE. Irish, English (?); Jig or Air. D Major (Aird, Joyce): G Major (Goodman). Standard tuning (fiddle). AB (Joyce): AABB (Aird, Goodman). The second strain is similar to, and perhaps cognate with the second strain of "Jig (36)" in County Cork cleric and uilleann piper James Goodman's mid-19th century music manuscript collection (vol. 3, p. 132). See also note for "Toormore Jig."

Source for notated version: "copied from a MS. lent (to collector John Edward Pigot, 1822–1871) by Mrs. Woodroffe (of Cork?)" {Joyce}.

Printed sources: Aird (Selections of Scotch, English, Irish and Foreign Airs, vol. 2), 1785; No. 177, p. 65 (appears as "Oak Stick, New Way"). Joyce (Old Irish Folk Music and Songs), 1909; No. 828, p. 401. Shields/Goodman (Tunes of the Munster Pipers), 1998; No. 336, p. 137.
