Tripping Upstairs

This is a traditional Irish jig, found at Han's Irish Bouzouki Homepage. Han's site is a wealth of information on the use of the bouzouki, a Greek folk instrument, in Irish folk music.

This MIDI arrangement is for pennywhistle, bouzouki, rhythm guitar, and bodhran. For the bouzouki, I used two tracks of acoustic steel-string guitar, for the double-coursed strings. Those with GS bank switching might try the 12-string guitar patch on Track 5, and muting Track 6, for a better sound.

This sequence uses an expanded pitch bend range, so be sure to hit that "RESET" button if you don't play it all the way through.
