As I explained in the whistle version, I had pictured the tune more as a death march or lament. As far as finding a Scottish source, that's gone for naught after three series of attempts. Now I've moved back to playing the tune on the fiddle (in AEAE; actually flattened a bit, as I think my fiddle sounds better when tuned slightly lower, about half-way between A and Ab). In moving it back to the fiddle, it could now be included in the topic on fiddle tunes that sound like bagpipes. I love the exquisite dissonance in the 2nd part. My apologies to Melvin Wine, as I still have removed a beat and made the tune regular and easy to march to.

Wow, that sounds like rustic, West Virginia fiddling, like from the Hammons family. Thanks for the treat.
