Captain Horne

This is a really nice, simple tune. One that should have folk wanting to tap their feet to. Ive been trying to find other tunes with the “same sort of feel” to go in a set with this so if anyone has a suggestion I’d be glad to hear it. I normally play it at a good moderate pace and it goes well ornamented bagpipe style. The tune is Scottish but other than that have no idea who Captain Horne actually was but I’m sure he must have been a cracker of a boy. Hope you like it and the ABC is ok.

Nice one, but you should put 2 *after* the notes you want to lengthen. I mean that should be something like this:

Sorry. That should be:

|f>AA2 B<Gg2|f>A(3AAA B<dd2|…
f2(3fed f2f<a|f2(3fed e>fa2|…

I remember this is also recorded by Keep It Up.
