There's a wee boat in the water!

There's a wee boat in the water, It's called 'Col Iso Ell'. From whence came this curious craft, now swaying on the gentle swell. 'Col Iso Ell', a name of curious hale. Perhaps it's from a far off land, from which adventurous tales abound; Or yet, maybe from a port less grand. 'Col Iso Ell', such in...

Muse - that force which gives one inspiration

Muse - that force which gives one inspiration.

I reckon most people will have a muse of some description, even MacLowrie.

More to see now

A view from South Queensferry across the Forth.

Written back in the day - 2014, when there was less to see (only two bridges).

Now, though, more crammed into the picture with the new Queensferry Crossing added, so quite apt a title and style.

Simply done

Very simply, this tune just developed yesterday and today, as is often the case - sheesh! :)

Wrote this today

Well, sometimes the clue is in the title, and I wrote this today, Friday 16th November 2018, and it was a braw day.

Eh, the MP3 is a wee bit slower than usual, but the software is not altogether playing ball today.

October in the Rain

Rain can make you feel like it's cold out there, but just now the rain is falling and the temperature is not too unpleasant, which just leaves to getting your brolly out without the arctic clothing, which is nice, in a strange sort of way, with which this tune I am trying to portray. I could have ca...

Re: Maria

Hi, I cannot help but wonder if the tune does progress in complexity, but misses a few tricks, like throws added in the 3rd part and the birl in the 3rd part written from the B's as a birl with the low A gracenote added (abr instead of brl in Bagpipe writer Gold, for example), with a G birl in the 4...

Re: Holiday 2018

Hey, Dan, you could very well be right, but if you'd stayed in the campsite there, with the trains passing every half hour or so almost 24/7, which wasn't in brochure by the way, you'd need more than this as a lullaby to get to sleep. Otherwise, a pleasant holiday was had, when I wasn't dozing off i...

Rockin' it!

Folks, within this tune there is a rhythm (naturally!) and within the rhythm there is a certain rhyme.

Each part has a different rhyme within the rhythm.

You just need to stare (listen with your eyes) at it a few dozen times, you'll get it eventually.

I'm not so sure the world is ready for this!

Fettling the parlour

Fettling, in this case, means tidying/ sorting.

And that's all there is to it, except nothing got sorted, just repositioned, such is life. :roll:

Re: Tempering the Steel

Well, as the description of the posting, it just gave me the feeling of the industrial processes that have to go on in the background to keep towns and countries ticking over. Not always easy to get a feel for a tune and it's definitely personal, but it is what it is. I just hope it's worthy of an a...

Re: Tempering the Steel

Cheers, Dan. Even my son, an ex snare drummer, liked the 3rd & 4th part. There's hope for us all :lol:

Tempering the Steel

What can I say, this is a wee tune for all those industry workers, the industry that gives the infrastructure of any country the ability to function. :)
