I didn't understand what the poll was about on the tune?.....was it a like it or not type answer you were looking for?......(I didn't want to vote until I knew what you were looking for)
Is a nice chune.....I could seet it as part of a suite.....IMHO

I agree....has a nice waltzy feel to it......One question I always ask when a tune is posted is the history behind it.....The history allows us to appreciate and pass on it's meaning when played in public.....and judging by the name......this one has to be "Interesting".....Mark

David, As Usual your tunes are well written and play beautifully.....I KNOW Bob's family will appreciate the effort and thought that went into it.....He will be missed by all those that knew him and the piping community has lost a great resource I hope there will be more tunes written in his memory....

One of the "Members" here also has a bagpipe chat site that alot of the pipers frequent.....His name is Bob Norris.....you can usually find at least two pipers there who will be able to answer your questions.....or you can email any of the tune posters/Moderators here and we will be more then happy ...

I can think of a few dummers (SORRY....DRummers).....that would be up to the challenge.....I will pass on the tune and see what they come up with......and then overlay the drum score and tune together to see how they sound.....Should be along in the next few days.......They like a challenge!.

VERY VERY NICE!........Definitely one I will be learning!
Pardon my ignorance but, Is there a type of dance that can be done to this tune?.......It has a flow that may fit a dance?
Again you put alot of yourself into your writing and it shows!......Well Done!

Not bad for a first effort.......and it has meaning to you .......which in turn makes it special.
I set the tempo at 130 BPM.....hopefully that is acceptable.....it is where it sounded best.
