I was browsing through the Requests section and was surprised to find one I actually knew. However, I could not bring myself to use the “Me” in the title (like “meh” or something), so I had to change it to “my”.
Joe - I haven’t come across this tune before, but commonsense tells me that the ‘D’ in bar 4 of the A-part should be a ‘d’, i.e. an octave higher. Please confirm this (and correct the abc), just to warn any complete newcomers to trad who might take it at face value.
This is one of many variants of a Scots jig called “Hills of Glenorchy”: https://thesession.org/tunes/842
Yes, that low D should be a high d, but it is, alas, too late to change now.
Bear that in mind though.
Ha this tune is in the very first jigs reels and hornpipes book i learned from…i like it!
