This beautiful Scottish tune offers opportunities to explore many concepts. Foremost are developing a successful chord progression (no V chord!, the use of one secondary dominant), several arrangements with a variety of ideas (two, three and four note chords, valley rolls, bounced triplets, arpeggio fills, melodic runs, tremolos, dynamics) and a backup part, and how to use a harmony part and develop it as a backup.
Recorded on SunRise

Recorded October 2015 Sandbridge VA
Until now, the sheet music for the arrangements and the video lessons were only available to students in Ken's Sandbridge Hammered Dulcimer Retreat Weeks. These videos were produced as comprehensive but informal, lightly-edited study aids for students to take home for all tunes taught during the week.
