Yes, it’s a very great and exciting tune, thanks for posting it! But I’ve always heard it with F naturals. Did you really mean F sharp? or if not, could it be adjusted?
I agree with fiddlefingers, the F are naturals.
Yes, in this key, the fs would be natural, but the original key would have been A with G naturals- ie, the "bagpipe" scale.
Anyone interested in this tune should have a long hard look at the variations composed by James Scott Skinner for this. Awesome.
And although the music was published with f#, I think it sounds much better playing all f naturals. Whopping it onto the flute requires a bit of creative substitution of low notes, nothing unsurmountable though - listen to Chris Norman’s version on the Caledonian Flute CD.
The variations played by the Cape Breton fiddlers are found in The Scottish Violinist by J. Scott Skinner… found here:
http://www.scribd.com/doc/5986922/Scott-Skinner-Scottish-Violinist on pages 30-31. Lots of fun… hear Natalie Macmaster play them pretty faithfully (and well) here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sdc-oL6VjIc&NR=1
Here is a version played on the flute by the Scots Calum Stewart although I still prefer the one recorded by Chris Norman on his last CD, "The Caledonian Flute". Give it a go if you have the chance.
I’ve just uploaded the version on Skineer’s book on woodenflute but without variations if someone is interested.
Does anyone know the name of the slow air she starts this set with? Thanks. CP
