Here is a fun Irish jig called Morrison's! I think the original name for this tune is "Stick Across the Hob," but I've only ever heard it referred to as "Morrison's Jig." I think it was James Morrison who made it popular, but that one of his band member's father wrote the tune.
It's a neat tune to play! I thought it would sound good with a lot of bass and drums, so I tried to keep extra treble instruments to a minimum in the backing track.
The locations in this video are the Rocky Mountain National Park. More specifically, they are at the lookout points along Trail Ridge Road. I've always wanted to take the drive up this road, and I thought this tune would go perfect with lots of cool mountain backgrounds. I'm definitely in the highlands -- That's for sure!
It was super awkward playing this tune at the lookout points while lots of tourists were walking around, but people seemed positive about it. I edited the video to minimize the amount of people walking in the background, but the place was packed with tourists!
It was really cold towards the top of the mountains...I definitely wasn't dressed appropriately for the alpine tundra in this video, but I had a coat off camera.. ^-^ If you ever take the same drive up Trail Ridge Road, dress with warm layers -- even if it's blistering hot in the cities at the base of the mountains. I also changed into normal clothing and went on some neat hikes! It was a fun day. =)
Thank you for watching!
