Cameron’s Got His Wife Again

This 18c strathspey is the original version of "Gullane" which I posted yesterday. The source is John Chambers’ collection.

sounds good if you make any notes longer than a crochet into triplets!

"This tune, Gullane, is not the same as ‘The Gullane’ already posted on this site, and is derived from (this) 18c strathspey ‘Cameron’s Got His Wife Again’ ~ ."
