This is a great old reel I remembered today. It appears is the Skye Collection as Lady Georgina Campbell.

It seems kind of strange for the last note of the tune to be A and not G. Is A the correct note? I’m guessing that the tune is ended in the first half or by hitting an G instead of an A to resolve it, according to the key signature?
I like this one
The Gesto Reel
A is the right note Kaylee, it’s just one of these non resolving tunes.
hi, I have another question about this tune, how have you heard it pronounced? Gesto, as in GUEST-oh, or Gesto as in JEST-oh?
The first one!
"GUES-to" it is, thanks
