Elliot Finn MacDonald

Catchy march composed by piper Finlay MacDonald and named for his son. Transcription based on the tune as played by Aly Bain and Phil Cunningham on their recording, *Five and Twenty*.

Just giving this transcription also as some others like to read such marches, as 2/4, and no other changes made to the original submission… This one fits the mold well, while other notier and more pronounced 4 count marches tend to fit 4/4 better, in my opinion. I’ll have to chase up a listen and see how ‘the boys’ handle this one, not having their "Five and Twenty" recording… It’s a nice little march, offering lots of possibilities…

Can you explain what that means, please, violinjenn?
