Major Campbell Graham M.B.E

I’ve submitted this tune after an enquiry about it yesterday. I’d forgotten what a great tune it is. Written by Pipe Major Angus MacDonald, I first heard it played by Alasdair White.

Re: Major Campbell Graham, MBE

Prefer it in D, and just once through the parts as Peter has it in X:1. D is how you’ll normally come across it. It was big on the session scene in the 90’s Scotland usually played doubled.

Major Campbell Graham, MBE, X:3

This came up in our local session recently. I’m told that X:1 is pretty much as it’s published in the Scots Guards book. X:3 is the way it’s played by Fin Moore and Sarah Hoy on the video linked above.
