Mrs Forbes

Great little tune with an unassuming name taken from the Athole Collection. A note says it is also called Mrs Dr Forbes Reel. Speaking fiddle, it is very triplet friendly and hitting those high ‘A’s at the beginning first and third phrases of the B part on an up or down bow (when either ignoring or doing the slurs as written) gives a cool emphasis where ever it tickles yer pickle.
