The Irish Gig is a collection of requests and favorites arranged for flute and guitar with descants composed for variation. It strives to be practical from a gigster’s point of view, which is “Help Me Make It Through the Night!” Time-tested sentimental songs are included along with pure instrumental dance tunes to allow the flutist to play the role of a good soprano with a wide range and lots of agility. Because the songs are so short, I have composed a new melody or “lead break” to double the original material, so repeats are a little less tiresome.
Like most things in life, this book is an ongoing project, and being on disks, it’s easy to fix. Communicate with us. I’m always looking for fun titles and would welcome the feedback.
