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: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!)
