Once Again Another Great Tune I Think Gordon Would
Have Enjoyed That ,As will Any Good Pipers Out There I'm Sure
Did You Have Him Playing Sleepy Maggie In Mind When You Wrote This
And How He Might Have Jazzed It Up :lol:

Had a malfunctioning web site link to this tune, so I want to fix it up before reloading the tune. Soon...

Everything's back in place.

The first part is now my other, second choice, so that's changed. As far as connections to Sleepy Maggie, no consciuos one. I knew it as an old two-parter, but I have now looked at the later additions to Sleepy Maggie. The "new" third part hassome similarites. Well, we've only got the nine notes, after all!

I'm Sorry, I Did'int Mean That In A Bad Way
As Someone Who Trie's To Write Music I Know How Difficult
To Work With Just The Limited Scale.
It's Still A Crack'in Tune

Not to worry--I certainly wasn't bothered or offended in any way!

Actually, if you want to see tremendous reduplication of known phrases look at the classical heavy 2/4s. After an original frst, and maybe second part, the variations revert to standard forms for whole phrases. Yet the best of the many good 2/4s come out on the whole as unique melodies.

I almost always have "spare parts" laying about my BMW GOLD files. I'll try this new first part, which is the weakest of the six, in some ways. And who knows what tomorrow may bring. I like a bland first part sometimes, but not always.

All comment and critique always welcome!
