Cock, Hook and Look

I wrote this tune for highland bagpipes - I hope the abc formatting is sufficiently standardised.

The high As in the third part are very quiet on GHB - the conical chanter tends to hide the high notes.

Cock, Hook and Look is the drill that NZ infantry soldiers performed on the old-fashioned self-loading riflewhen it stopped firing: Cock it, hook the moving parts back, look inside the chamber.

I just played it for the first time on my accordeon. Sounds great.
