Recording and set

This is the second tune in the three reel set (The Gallowhill Reel, The Spider’s Web and The Road to Diabaig) by Ian Hardie on his cd ‘The Spider’s Web’ (Greentrax Recordings).
When playing this tune after The Gallowhill Reel the lead-in ‘c’ note should not be played. On Ian’s cd it sounds as if he is double-stopping a ‘B’ with the ‘F’, ‘D’, ‘F’ in the first and fifth bars of the first part and double-stopping a ‘c’ with the ‘A’, ‘E’, ‘A’ in the second and sixth bars of the first part (by using a fourth finger on the D-string for the two ‘A’ notes).
