The Road To Benderloch, X:2

A fine tune from just up the road. I play it returning to the first part ending on the second part repeat, any time I’ve heard Angus play it he does too. I know he wrote it in Amix, not having a G# on his pipes, but I play it Amaj as I do have a G# on my pipes and think it sounds better.

Funnily enough I wondered that when I posted it as off the top of my head I’d play it that way too! I consulted Angus MacDonald’s collection which has it without the second time, so I thought it better to put it in that way.
