Scotland Is My Ain Hame
"Ain Hame"="Own Home"
Sets well with "Miss Forbes Farewell To Banff", which I posted recently:
I’ve always played "Scotland Is My Ain Hame" in AMaj, but as I understand that it’s commonly played in GMaj, here is the alternative setting:

Known to Northumbrian pipes as Ward’s Brae, played slightly different with a few more runs here and there. Don’t know which came first, but whichever it was is based on an even older chord sequence.
Re: Scotland Is My Ain Hame
Anybody know exactly where Ward’s Brae is?
