Notes: Similar to my original setting, here I include intervallic variation (both parts) and rhythmic variation, incorporating a string of triplets in the B part. The "short" (fiddle) rolls or graced triplets in the first part of my first setting are now replaced by a pair of 16th notes and an 8th note, and are typical Scottish fiddle ornaments used for reels and hornpipes. This tune could be turned into a Scottish strathspey by inserting Scots snaps (reverse dotted pairs) and dotted-eighth-note combinations.
