Cork Hill

This is a Scottish pipe tune, so I attempted to recreate bagpipe embellishments as best I could, though some were left out. All the three 1/8 note phrases( {g}A{d}A{e}A {g}e2 f for example) should be played held-cut-normal length. This is an excellent tune that goes well with "Paddy’s Leather Breeches" and "The Connaughtman’s Rambles."

I realized when I tried to play this on the whistle, that some of the embellishments are almost impossible except on the pipes, but the first phrase (AAA) can be played with "B" gracenotes and rollings.

i really like this song, but how the heck can people play it perfectly like how it sounds on the midi file?
