Tailgating The Minister

This is a Kathryn Tickell tune, originally recorded on her Ensemble Mystical album, where it is played on Northumbrian smallpipes in Fmaj. My transcription is of Calum Stewart’s variation of the tune, played on uilleann pipes in Gmaj.

It’s the first reel in this set:

Tailgating The Minister, X:3

This is my take on the Calum Stewart performance of this tune. I include the "B" part. He does a number of variations and ornamentations as he repeats, e.g. backstitching, slurs and rolls, but this is the core of the tune. Happy piping!

Tailgating The Minister, X:5

Version 5: Most similar to the version 3 transcription, but tidier.

Tailgating The Minister, X:6

Yet another tiny variation with a different run of notes in bar 7, and different B-part second time bar, which I think leads better back into the A-part (with a "d" rather than "e").

Tailgating The Minister, X:7

(and another variation at the end of bar 4… seems editing is no longer possible, so I’ve added three settings that are broadly the same… sorry everyone!)
