Oh My Gosh!! I’ve been wanting to learn this tune for literally FOREVER and now I can. To bad it’s not traditional and i can’t put it on my next cd. I don’t quite know how to get permission from the composer :(
THANK YOU!! for me your first is your best.
Hey, ifn anyone is available and amenable it will be Phil. Just ask him if you really want to record it in your own accent… Asking never hurt, you only get a yes, maybe or a no…
Slightly different version
Here’s a slightly different version I learned from somewhere…not sure where but I think it might have been from a Battlefield Band album:

Re: The Appropriate Dipstick
‘The Appropriate Dipstick’ was written by Iain MacDonald and Phil Cunningham in 1990 as part of the music for an epic theatre production called ‘The Ship’ written by playwright and theatre director Bill Bryden. It was staged in one of Harland & Wolff’s massive shipbuilding sheds in Govan on the Clyde.
