Ten comments

Key

I just guessed at the key of this one. It’s transposed off of a Scottish piper and key signature is largely ignored in that idiom.

This goes great into Donald, Willie And His Dog on the Angus MacDonald album. Simple but hearty slip jig

This tune is actually in Am. It’s a Scottish pipe tune - Scottish pipes use A mix scale (Bb mix on GHB) but often tunes miss out the third to give the feeling of minor.

Donald Willie and his Dog is a great tune but the transcription here is very inaccurate. Kenny has the standard setting in the comments section of the tune.

Barabel Phadruig

Shouldn’t the first note of the first three bars of the second part be an A? I’ve never heard it played with a B.

“Barabel Phadruig” / “Donald Willie and his Dog”

Note: the above transcriptions are taken from the highland piping of Dr. Angus MacDonald, track 9 on the CD "Harps, Pipes and Fiddles", given above first in the key it sounds to be in, and then transposed for comparision with the transcript already here… Both parts repeat, in other words, the usual AABB…

A lovely tune and nicely played…
