*Notes: The sheet music and YouTube above are slightly different versions of the tune, plus both are in A major (which lends credence to my theory that Scott Skinner composed it as a pipe tune). Torrindon in the video also play it as a strathspey in comparison to the “straight” march rhythm in the MP3s above. Comparing the two versions provides an excellent demonstration of what makes a strathspey rhythm with its ‘Scottish snaps’.
