One of my favourite strathspeys.

What?

Sorry,that wasn’t polite.I beg your pardon?

??? ~ A Mixolydian ~ ???

Maybe after mixing Irish whiskey with Scotch? This rings as being the less exotic but just as interesting ‘A major’… But maybe that’s from mixing orange and apple juice this evening?

It can be played in Amajor with just the g natural in the twelth bar.

None of these Gs are natural as I’ve learned and played this one in the past, all are #… But I suppose some might choose to do the nat, but it sounds naff to my ears and sensibilities…

Highland Fling ~

BUT ~ I admit it is interesting in A mix. I did chase up a piper’s take on this but he seemed to be playing it in D Major… Also, I’d learned it as 16 bars, no repeats and with that ‘second ending’ back to the first for the B-part of the music…
