Re: The Gates Of Edinburgh

The two tunes I recently posted are Barndances. In Scotland, these would be played as reels but I have chosen Barndance as it is the tune type that best reflects the speed that the music is being played at. The recording I listened to has been mentioned in the comment I posted when I posted the tune. Same applies to some tunes played by Ron Gonnella that I posted earlier.

Re: The Gates Of Edinburgh

This tune is played as a good going reel up my way (East Scotland) and usually in the key of D.

Re: The Gates Of Edinburgh

I have a lovely Parlaphone 78 rpm of this played by Jimmy Shand. A cracking tune.
