Good Drying

A very riffy and unique pipe reel by R S MacDonald (he of "Last Tango in Harris") that we have been learning/playing recently. This transcription from the original recording.

Re: Good Drying

Beat me to it, Calum. Watching telly and transcribing takes time.

Good Drying, X:2

Second setting as played by Calum MacCrimmon and James Mackenzie of Braebach.

Re: Good Drying
