That’s right! From the Skye Collection once again!

Page 69, bottom tune. It’s a pipe tune in B Minor. VERY nice strathspey, indeed! If I do say so myself!

Oh the pipes… Oh poo, I can only do it on the whistle and fiddle. It’s all good!

Cheers and waiting for Uilleann Pipes… Yum….

Armand, if you’re quick, you can edit the abcs to change the key to B dorian, and then get rid of the accidental g sharps. Then it will show up correct in the sheet music—if you change it before Jeremy works his magic.

Good idea, Will! Thanks, dunnit!

Also the tune to…

This is also the tune to the well known Scottish folk song ‘Birniebouzle’.

It also works as a reel

Colm O’Rua taught us this in July 2003 (Mandolin/Banjo course at Sabhal Mor Ostaig) - just take out all the ‘strathspey’ dotted rythms to produce even sets of notes and you have it as a reel.
