X: 1 T:The Traditional Jig R:jig C:Ed Reavy M:6/8 L:1/8 Z:Joe Reavy N:Ed took one of his favorite reels (McKenna's) N:and changed it into his extraordinary little jig. N:Any musician who has tried this feat knows how N:frustrating it can be. I'm reminded of a story N:once of one who tried to change a tune and failed. N:All too quick to take credit for his own N:latest "improvement" of an old tune, our would-be N:composer waited anxiously for the praise he N:so confidently expected. A crafty old judge of N:tunes himself was only too happy to deliver the N:final judgment: N:Son, if you left out what you put in N:and put back in what you left out, N:it'd be a good tune.
