Re: James Bett (& Collection) Revisited

True enough of the first two lines...
then converts to 6/8, and the last
line is... 4/4?

But hey, It was merely the first
version I dropped in on -- lucky
me to find a strange one?

There's little doubt about that.

Re: James Bett (& Collection) Revisited

Cheers for that...
undoubtably the same tune;
originally a 2/4 -- now a 6/8?

There's lots more expression in
the Loch Leven Castle version
seen online.

Re: Blowstick Length?

There's no reason you can't use your
flexstick on the new pipes, is there?

Or, borrow an adjustable blowstick
to try several lengths of 'straight',
until you're certain.

Re: In search of Dr. James Bett

Correcting the above, from Post #12, the
author / publisher of the collection of tunes
is far more likely to have been James Bett Jr.,
2 yrs younger brother of Dr. Patrick Bett.
