The Atholl Lowlanders

While I hate playing the cheesy Atholl Highlanders, I really enjoy his cousin The Atholl Lowlanders, here in A dorian but it can also be played in A minor with “f natural” instead of “g” for even more darkness. If so, I like it played at a slow pace.

I think the tune started as a joke but is now played from time to time in scottish sessions.
