REEL DE TI-GUS. AKA and see "Aimé Gagnon (1)." French-Canadian, Reel (cut time). G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. Soucy researcher Jean Duval finds this reel to be a version of one recorded by Adrien Avon and his Black Devils a few years earlier than La Famille Soucy's 1950 Bluebird recording[1]. Paul Fackler comments that the reel is also the first tune in the Diable Vert medley on the group Manigance's "Nouvelles manigances" recording (Claude Methe called the tune 'Diable Vert' because he learned it from the band Les diables noir, and added a minor adaptation).
