  • Strath for Drumlithie

    Greetings. Looking for recommendations for strathspeys that pair well with Drumlithie as a competition S/R for grades 3 or 2 (EUSPBA). I've always liked Drumlithie, but never used it as a competition reel. Now I'd like to work it up and have it as an option.

    Many thanks!
    Eddie

    You want something that you can cut up to a final high A on - something like Shepherd's Crook, for example.

      Never seen Drumlithie. What book is it in, like to have a look.

          My grade 2 band plays Dumlithie coming from Duncan Lamont. Nice key change coming from B minor to A Major.

              Thank you, Calum and John. In addition to the fine ones you suggest, I've found a couple of others that may work. As you mention, Calum, an A final note makes for a smooth transition, though I'm intrigued by the B minor to A major segue.
              Cheers
