Choppy Waters

An ambiguous jig in the Phrygian mode, which is rarely used in Irish music.

I call this tune type a ‘Sea Jig’, it has a hypnotic rolling sea-like rhythm that is found in traditional sea-referencing jigs like ‘The Rolling Wave’ and ‘Out on the Ocean’. These feel like a different kind of jig to me to regular jigs, so I’m calling them ‘Sea Jigs’.
