written scottish music for A smallpipes

Post  Nicolas on Tue Mar 08, 2011 10:03 am

Hi !

This summer a friend ask me to play bagpipes for his wedding. I'll play the smallpipes in A and a another musician will play music too (fiddle). She called me today asking if I am interested to play with her but saying that she only read music (no music by ear), and I am the oposite (can't read music...). I would like to propose her these 3 tunes:

Sir John Fenwick (The flower "amang" them all)
Drops of Brandy
Aire de Pontevedra

Does someone knows where I can find these tunes (could be very good if already written in A but not absolutely neccessary)

Thank you !


Nicolas

Nicolas, I think you should try the Bob Dunsire forums. They have innumerably more players, that are right into this kind of tings. We, round here, tend to be just makers, mostly, even if we all do play a bit...

The version of "Aires de Pontevedra" on thesession.org is incomplete.
Here http://breizhpartitions.free.fr/de/partitur_download.php/12_Aires_de_Pontevedra is the complete version.
The other tunes will have to be transposed - Drops of Brandy from D to A, Sir John Fenwick from G to A (I found for myself that transposing a tune can be a good way to learn it by heart).
A few little melodic changes will have to be made for "Sir John Fenwick" to fit it into the range of the smallpipes (Scottish, I suppose).
