Six comments

whoops! Wouldn’t know where to look for it. My apologies. Of couse it would be. Well, at least I know the name of it. :)

Nice version Tessa, I’ve cut-and-pasted it to the comments of the earlier tune, as things duplicated tend to disappear in time… I hope you don’t mind the minor changes on your take on it. I kept all your notes as they were…

Which tune follows

anyone got some good idea’s about what tunes would go with this in a set?

Arran Boat

I play it in between Westering Home and Ye Banks and Braes.
