Default Battle of Killiecrankie & Wild Mountain Thyme

Are two of the many songs that I can't play

I'm sure you'll agree that this is a terrible situation which cannot be allowed to continue, SO, tell me (please)

Where can I find the sheet music so I can crank 'em into PiobMaster and start learing them?

Answers on the back of a 100 Dollar bill if possible, faxed to the usual address :woohoo:

Battle of Killiecrankie can be found in Scots Guards 1

Wild Mountain Thyme can be found as Will Ye Go, Lassie, Go in Don Bishop's Highland Harmonies, Book 3

Enjoy

Thanks Richard, I have SG1 but the settings are "not quite right". I'd love to have the Royal Scots Dragoon Guards settings from their Highland Cathedral DVD. Any idea if this has been published?

Hi...

There is a tune book.. published in about 1981... called The Royal Scots (The Royal Regiment) Pipe Music... (neat book ... has a good Royal Scots Polka, Going Home, and lots o' clean other settings, and melodic tunes)

I'm guessing the Royal Scots Dragoon Guards is one of the downsized/combined regiments created since then? ( Stormy, or one of our other UK friends bear me out? )

Killicrankie in this old book is a three part tune with minor variations in setting from SG1 ( Stevie, I've not heard the CD you're mentioning [can't afford both a ton of books and ton of cd's ]... so the album's setting may have been rearranged by the current P/M music director).

Having hedged my bets all this way... working from the SG version... the Royal Scots published version compares as follows:

Melody note changes first:
Part 1... no change

Part 2...
bar 2 &amp; 6 starts dbhg HG dotted eighth to HA sixteenth
bar 3 ends E 32d D dotted 16th
bar 4 starts dbhg HG 8th
bar 4 ends dbe E dotted 8th E 16th

Part 3
bar 3 last two notes... reverse to a cut 32d dot 16th

Part 4... no part four in the Royal Scots setting.

Grace noting pretty much the same...except
Part 1, bar 1 &amp; 5 use the heavy g grace birl

Throughout the tune in SG where there is a dthrow before the second note of tied eighths... eliminate them... makes the tune cleaner.

Hope this accounts for "not quite right". Beyond this I have no help...

cheers, enjoy

Hi Richard,

Many thanks for your help. The Royal Scots and RSDG are seperate regiments and are still "alive and kicking", unlike my old Regiment the Gordon Highlanders, which was amalgamated with the Queen's OWn Highlanders into The Highlanders.

I made the best attempt I could at editing my PiobMaster file as you outlined but unfortunately it still does not sound right.

I'll try to get a copy of the RSDG's settings.

Thanks again though I really appreciate the time you took to help me.

Steve
