A newish tune. I welcome critique if anyone finds a spot which just doesn't go. Otherwise, enjoy.

WONDERFUL, I loved it so much I sent it on to our PM - maybe he will like it enough to have the band play it.

[size=18]Hi, Just listened to The Cadence of Loom. Must say I like the style, though I feel the last two notes of each 7th bar could do with accenting like the rest. Should it be, or not? Nice, though.

Cheers,

Andi :)

The last two notes of the 7th bar are even to give a more melodic sense to the ending. Quite a few pipe music settings defaults to rhythm over melody. Many Scottish songs which are also played as pipe tunes get over-pointed, and no longer fit the words. I am always mindful of a 2-4 competition years ago, with Seamus MacNeill judging, when he said that I was over-pointing Cowal Highland Gathering, and he noted that some of the "dotted 16th/32nd" note sequences which I had played were not actually written thus, but in fact as "16th/16th" notes. In my tune, I just liked the light, final break from heavier pointing. To Dot&Cut, or not, is, however, a quasi-religious matter in the end. Your suggestion would not be a bad one, however. I'm afraid I'm stuck on the slight opening up of the ending. Lots to say for two notes!

Thanks for the input.
