Alec Hercher

This strathspey was composed by Donald Riddell and featured in his "Clunes Collection" although I learnt it off Bruce MacGregor’s "101 Reasons to Do Nothing".

"Alec Hercher" ~ is a ‘Strathspey’ ~

NOTE: as the ‘less than’ sign causes problems, taken in this area as an HTML tag and deleting all things after it until you reach ‘>’, an asterisk (*) is used instead to designate a ‘snap’ in the previous ABCs for the Strathspey…

No problem with ‘less than’ signs

Hey, ‘c’! You mean this?

And, yes. Bruce MacGregor recorded this as a strathspey.
