The tune is considered to be more suitable for the intermediate and advanced pipers.
Maintain four beats to the bar that helps to keep control of the regular rhythm of the dance that has a kind of bounce to the steps and in the playing.
Avoid dropping off some beats early as happens at times even with the best pipers. In general attention to the dotted notes relative duration helps. One example that tends to happen is in the first two parts second and sixth bars C to longer low A. The low A after the common open type C doubling often does not have the rest of the beat relative duration (dotted note). I’ll try to remember to show it in the relative video.
Triplets or triplings as we tend to say in Piping that occur often in this tune must have the clarity of the three notes with the third longest note relatively long enough within the beat values.
The audio comentry below has more detail than the video, so please use it often enough as necessary.
