Bonnie Banchory

Composed by Scott Skinner.

Would make a good hornpipe?

I think if you dot the first of each quaver pair this tune would also play well as a hornpipe. The B section sounds quite typical of that type of tune. A good tune either way, though.

Clootie Dumplings, X:2

I just put G for easier whistle and banjo playing

Re: Clootie Dumplings

For a Scottish violinist, didn’t James Scott Skinner write some great Northumbrian pipe tunes!!!

Re: Clootie Dumplings

To me it sounds more like a hornpipe, nice tune though.
