Hamburska efter Pehr Ericsson

Hello!
This week's #tunefriday is a tune I learnt on the Swedish bagpipes (säckpipa) whilst at the säckpipa weekend in Gagnef. I thought it was the prettiest little tune ever!
Enjoy!

One for His Nob

Hello!
This week we have a tune that I love to play for contra dances. It's got a really lovely back beat feel to it. So play it nice and lightly. The tune is a reference to a method of point scoring in the card game cribbage.

Skäggischottisen

Hello!
This weeks #tunefriday is a schottis. It's called Skäggigtchottisen - The Beardy Schottis. :D
Slur the two notes on each beat, if there are two notes the same, then bounce the bow through - up up.
It also introduces my latest addition to the family - the Moraharpa. :D
Enjoy!
:)
