Tune 93 - Scotland the Brave





As it is St Andrew's day I thought Scotland the Brave (Scottish Gaelic: Alba an Aigh) would be apposite as it is one of several songs considered an unofficial national anthem of Scotland.

  1. This tune reminds me of a dear old friends at the session in Butlerstown, West Cork. He plays this every Sunday night and still after 6+ months I never learned that second twist of it for some reason. Nicely done on the D/G. Do you play it on one row only?

    1. Hi Susi - I play the tune straight up and down the G row, but that is probably because I originally learned on a 1 Row :)
