I’m attempting to learn a Newfoundland jig by Emile Benoit called Christina’s Dream. There are two versions of the jig. I have the sheet music of the original but most recorded versions are of the modified version. I finally did find a recording of the original though!

There’s a part near the end which has a quarter note, an eight note and then three quarter notes. I have issues playing that section properly. I’m also no where near the speed I need to be to play that tune the way it is meant to be played (I’ve only been playing just under three months).
