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

Calum beat me by fourteen minutes.

Good Drying, X:3

Apologies. It’s this setting played by Braebach (X:2 is the original).

Good Drying, X:4

Perhaps easier to get the detail from this transcrition from the original.
