Tunes: The Blackthorn Stick

I wanted to pick a couple of tunes to learn well enough to play them with others at a session, and decided to start with a jig called the Blackthorn Stick. It has a catchy melody plus certain patterns that repeat throughout the song, which made it very easy to learn. I have it memorized and hope to be able to play it decently at half speed before next week's session.
