Four part Strathspey

Post by portlandpiper » Fri Apr 24, 2009 6:46 pm

The third part of this tune came to mind first while at a Contra dance with my wife - it was originally the second part of the tune. Rene Cusson looked it over and said it has a nice Gaelic feeling but the second and third parts should probably be switched. I tried playing it both ways for a few days and agreed. I also replaced a couple of D-throws in the middle of the first and third measures in the first part with gracenotes to make the tune feel a bit lighter.
