By Dan R, if I’m not mistaken. Learnt this a while back - obviously a long while (>10 years) as I’d forgotten it.

Re: Anne MacNamara

You’re certainly not mistaken, Donald! Kinnon Beaton taught us this at Colàisde na Gaidhlig a few years ago. Great one!

Re: Anne MacNamara

Just noticed that there is a beat missing in the third and seventh bars of the first part.
Should be something like |f>a e<c B<A B>c| or, the way I learnt it, |f<a e>c B>A B<c|.
