Lesson Pointers

The tune is suitable for the more advanced piper. As in most strathspeys attention to controlled upbeats is important and helps to provide a certain lift to the rhythm when played pointed as in most marches of this type.

A slight feeling on certain downbeats also helps, yet without seemingly neglecting the upbeat duration – fairly subtle. Of course good clarity of execution must be there too.

Tempos in these marches are much slower relatively to that of marches for parade type marching, i.e. Beats per minute of 72 – 84 might apply for solo, with very slightly quicker for bands.

When first tackling this tune It should be taken very steadily and accurately of execution and controlled rhythm.
