Terrific Pipe Tune - or fiddle
I’ve heard this tune all my life but the challenge is it’s actually written in Eb (C Minor) I don’t know how to do this on this system. So - it really isn’t as hard to play as it looks and … well enjoy.
I play fiddle and I also enter competitions. I know this as a Slow Strathspey and it is a fiddle tune, not a pipe one. It was written by Ian Fraser… I think.
It’s a fantastic tune!
Composed by Captain Simon Fraser. Published in 1816.
Well I alsmost got the composer right!
The Beauty of the North transposed for flute
Chris Norman played this Stathspey beautifuly on his CD of the same name but needed to transposed it to a more fluty key:

Beauty Of The North
Tune transposed up a bit to be played on the flute.
Re: Beauty Of The North
To fix the first setting, it can’t be done here, but if you download the abc, just change the key to Eb. Thanks for posting.
