A great B min scottish pipe tune. This is from JC’s with a few minor changes to the abc’s.

On fiddle it’s nice if you slide up to that high a2 towards the end. Also (in my humble opinion) this tune benefits from being played pretty slowly - almost like a slow reel but not quite that slow.

This is on Blazin’ Fiddle’s first album and there is a great tune "Bonnie Mulligan" that comes after this tune. I will try and post that soon.

Cheers,

Sam

Wow!

Love this tune, a lot!

Interestingly, the first bit is similar(ish) to Zeeto the Bubbleman by Gordon Duncan: https://thesession.org/tunes/7872

Ok, maybe not "similar", but "reminds me of"
