That’s right! From the Skye Collection once again!
Page 69, bottom tune. It’s a pipe tune in B Minor. VERY nice strathspey, indeed! If I do say so myself!
Oh the pipes… Oh poo, I can only do it on the whistle and fiddle. It’s all good!
Cheers and waiting for Uilleann Pipes… Yum….
Armand, if you’re quick, you can edit the abcs to change the key to B dorian, and then get rid of the accidental g sharps. Then it will show up correct in the sheet music—if you change it before Jeremy works his magic.
