    There is no doubt that this is the most popular and famous of all the Irish jigs. My number one objective though was to not produce a cover of the amazing Corrs version of this tune, after all - I'm not remotely as pretty as those three Corrs colleens.

    In the absence of all that prettiness, this version is focused on drums, bass and guitar. What I have taken from the Corrs version - is the time signature. The traditional tune is a 6/8 jig. The Corrs (and me) converted this to a 4/4 shuffle to allow for a more dynamic rhythm section.

    Grab whoever is next to you and start twirling around the room!
