Kind of related to Caber Feidh

I knew a band who played Duncan McGilvray with G throws rather than grips up to G, and with light grace note strikes rathe rthan closing the chanter. Both this tune, and Caber Feidh need those low G's.

I suppose wehat I'm trying to say is, the setting matter just as much as the tune selection sometimes.

Greetings to All,

Having been asked for a favorite one...
but in the light... of all of these lovely
replies... I shall now add... a second. :)

"Lady Madelina Sinclair."

A fine strathspey... once fairly well known...
and played... but now not much heard
anymore. (Rather like the old tune, "The
Barren Rocks of Aden.")

Perhaps this Thread... might help in the
possible resurrection... of Lady Madelina.

Regards to All,

Pip01

What a good choice! I was only extolling the virtues of some of the old 2 parted strathspeys to a pupil during a FaceTime lesson not an hour ago.

I would like to add:

The Flying Scotsman

and

Angus MacKenzie of Dumbarton

These tunes are brilliant.

Of the more popular tunes, Green Hills. I know some have mentioned on these boards from time to time they tire of it... I just don't.

It's Gioachino Rossini's most famous pipe tune.
