Hunt A Cat

Learned from Sile Friel at a workshop. She is a great piper, a good teacher a very nice person!
They found it in the Roche Collection .
I’m not sure abou the mode, I think it is Ddorian which is not on the menu here…..

Re: Hunt The Cat

First basic version, 2nd round some possible variations especially for pipers

Re: Hunt The Cat

The tune uses a gapped modal scale, D E G A B C. It can be interpreted by an accompanist as either D Mixolydian or D Dorian, since there are neither F#s nor Fnats in it at all.

I tend more towards hearing it as Mixolydian, since the conventional regulators layout has an F# instead of an Fnat and I would play it in that manner.

Of course, if you play just the chanter and drones with a guitarist or bouzouki player accompanying, he or she may do as she wishes with regard to the DDorian vs Dmix question, and it would sound good either way.
