My Dad and I Jam the Swallow Tail Jig [VIDEO]
Subscribe to 107.9 The River on
I’m currently learning the ukulele. My dad, who knows how to play just about every instrument, and I hang out sometimes while he teaches me some uke tricks and, every once in a while, he’ll bust out his viola (his preferred instrument of choice). In this video we play the Swallow Tail Jig. It’s one of those Celtic pieces that I’ve heard a thousand times, but didn’t know it actually had a name.
It’s funny. I only have two notes to play, but I clearly play more than two notes due to my mistakes and me trying to keep up with my dad.
Still, it’s a fun piece. Definitely ‘River Dance-able’.
