Nice to be able to give feedback Bill.

The lesson is very good. Good timing and good advice on all fronts. The timings of both tunes were slightly different to the band versions I learned. I changed from the band version of A Mans a Man to a version nearly the same as yours from a Regimental Book but I will now learn yours since they seem to be more correct.

We had a very nice ending for part three of Corn Riggs which you do not play. I found myself playing from the B to a B grip or Rodin before the birl at the end of the first part of AMAMFAT.

It sounds good if you get good separation. The big changes for me will be with Corn Riggs and you have given me lots of time to get it right.

Thanks and have a Great Christmas and Hogmanay.

Good to hear from you, Ray.

Yes the Man's a Man
can have that D to low A grip last bar then Birl, although more of a Piping thing than that of the song the music of that for piano I have in an old over 100 years old large book of Burn's songs. It has music, words, illustrations, and notes on the song backgrounds.

I intended to provide the music in time for those wanting the tunes for the event next month.
As usual I am pleased to be of help.

All the best,
