Notes: Here is a nine-part-contest version of the famous Scottish reel—not for the faint of heart. I have it in G, but obviously, it can be capoed to A. These are advanced Irish fingerstyle variations (G tuning) that use ornamentation in the form of triplets, inspired by legend Anthony Sullivan, who pioneered 4-string variations in A (GDAE tuning). In that same spirit, I have added (optional) chords and a fancy ending that is reminiscent of frenzied fiddlers bringing the tune home. One doesn't have to play all nine parts, and they can be combined and re-combined to suit one's taste; in other words, make this tune as long or as short as you want.
