I’ve been learning a handful of Strathspeys on my fiddle. So far I’ve got ‘Brisk Bob’ and ‘Cutting Bracken’.
I love them and I havn’t exactly found them hard… but… I really have no idea what a Strathspey is! Everyone I asks seems to have a different answer, but then, of course, I live in a part of the world where I don’t know anyone who plays traditional music.
Is it 4/4 time, like a reel? Because it feels different. I play by ear, so I really only mimic, but I thought it would help with playing these if I knew WHAT they were!
