Default Re: Four part (maybe five, max) Pibroch recommendations?

A very easy tune which has a very nice melody and is easy to memorize is Donald McLeod's "Queen Elizabeth The Second's Salute."

I always get compliments from the judges and those in higher grades on that tune.

It has the Urlar, Toarluath, Toarluath Variation, the Crunluath (standard), and Crunluath variation.

If memory serves me right, you will find Echo Movements (E), the Edre, D Toarluaths, and D Crunluaths, but really, there is nothing particularly or technically difficult in this tune at all.

You may find a video of it on the "Tube" for reference. Alistair Dunn and Angus D. MacColl may be seen playing the tune.

Very easy to memorize as well, as it has a very nice melody. You will catch yourself humming it with out realizing that you are doing it.

Best of luck!
