Kirkmichael Ploughs

Composed by Robert Petrie. Sandy MacIntyre plays it slow, so some of the dotted rhythms are played as quavers.

Thanks Connor - lovely tune. I live in Perthshire, so I’ve passed through Kirkmichael.

If you don’t mind a friendly piece of advice about your ABC, you do not need a first and second ending to the A part. The last note in the first ending is the same as your lead-in note, so miss it out and do away with the start-repeat at the beginning of the A part. Then the last note in the 2nd ending becomes a lead-in note for the B part. It makes it much neater and readable, in my humble opinion.
