The Cock And Hen

This tune was originally in 9/8 time. Unfortunely, Sequencer only does 4/4 or 3/4 time. However, 9/8 time (at least in jigs) is based on groups of three 8th notes. (Just exactly like the 6/8 time jigs I've posted.) This means that there were no alterations to melody to make it fit and the rhythm isn't different enough to be a bother.

To put it back into 9/8 time, you'd have to put the measure divisions every measure and a half of what's currently posted. That is, one measure bar every nine 8th notes. (This is not necessary to do, but I thought someone might be interested.)

Like the other jigs, play this section twice and go on to the next page.

Chords (played on the first and fourth 8th notes...that is, at the start of each group of three): G G, G G, G G, G G, G D, C G
