Patrick,

I liked (like) it a great deal!!

Good show!! Well done!!

As a side note (groan... :) I've been playing (and singing)
"The Shoals of Herring" for donkey's years... and this ain't it.

And, yes, there are some note similarities with some other tunes
but... God Help Us!... there are dozens of tunes with other such
similarities.... (It was ever thus...)

For me, the smart money would be on... it's orginal! Congratulations!

And, if I may, I think that it would also go grandly as a quick step...

Keep up the good work!!

Again, congratulations!!

Regards,

Pip01

Just a "further to my post of yesterday" Patrick--you could totally remove the 'shoals' by subbing " E low g on C" for the last 2 notes of the problematic bar...?

It's a natural harmony for those notes, so it should work musically...IF you are still bothered by that line

You seem to have a general thumbs up for your tune, anyway!

Cheers
Evanie

I've settled on:
Marcus McLaurin of the 772nd Tank Battalion, WWII

for the title, the grandfather I never got to meet.

Janette has written some harmonies for it so once I get that back from her with the title on it I'll pass that on as well. For now, you can get the pdf off my website here. Also added is a slow air I wrote some time back that I just now got to adding to the website: "A Father of Piping, Brian Barrow".

Later!

Your title is added and in your email. I like the tune very much. And the title is great and the story behind it.

I've added the sheet you provided me to my website. I sort of assumed you wouldn't mind sharing your harmony?!
