Default Re: "Acceptable" competition tunes for BOTH Grade 2 & 3

Nothing stands out to me as being wildly unsuitable, though I don't know the hornpipes. 91st as a strathspey will get you some serious side-eye from less open-minded judges, of which there are too many.

As for round playing - well, it worked all right for Iain Morrison. See above comments about open-minded judges, though. As with all things in competition, if you depart from the straight and narrow path you have no room to be anything less than perfect.

Some will argue Susan McLeod is overplayed, but frankly there's a reason for it - it's a good tune. And they can pick something else if they don't want to hear it.
