Miss Simple’s (reel)

The original title of this tune is “The Hon. Miss Sempill” and is from Robert “Red Rob” Mackintosh’s 1793 collection.

I like to play…

the second to last measure of the B part thusly:

|gdgd ceag|

to avoid repeating the c from the previous measure and to somewhat echo the BGBG in the fourth measure of the same part.

A fun tune! Thanks for sharing it!
