Default "Smartly on the Down" - 9/8 (mostly!) march

My pipe band has spent years "curating" a list of tune names, and I thought this is as good of a time as any to start writing the melodies to go along with them! The first is "Smartly on the Down", inspired by something I've been told I say repeatedly at most rehearsals. And note the bar of 12/8 at the ends of the part mean you'll technically be on the wrong foot during the repeat! Free PDF & MP3 in the description of the video.
