This setting is adapted from the setting in The Athole Collection, transcribed by Andrew Kuntz: http://tunearch.org/wiki/Ferintosh_Whiskey
I like to play just a few more C naturals than the version there.
Re: Ferintosh C naturals
In Captain Fraser’s setting from 1874 your C nats are included, but in Fiddle Music of Scotland from 1979, they’re not. Interestingly, Hector MacAndrew did not play them, and more recently Jonny Hardie on the CD "The Captain’s Collection" does not play them either. To me, the tune sounds good either way.
Interesting, I haven’t played out of the Hunter book in a while. It gives a totally different feel to sharpen those Cs! Thanks for sharing that, Nigel.
