I’ve been looking for inspiration and came across Robin Clarke’s version of this tune

I once played at a summer renaissance fair for a couple of years in a trio...the other 2 knew it and we sang the latin words(whatever they meant).Good to hear it again.

Thanks for passing along the tuning.  Will try it.

Ariana, Elvensong- Thanks

I wasn’t aware of this way of achieving minor tuning until I saw Robin C’s post but I really like it

i hope you enjoy giving this tune a go!

Sounds wonderfully mystical!

Very nice! I 'm gonna have to give this tuning a go. I really love the minor tunings and their haunting feel.

Thanks everyone !

I was tuned to Ccga# on this one which is a bit of a departure from my usual bagpipe tuning

Steve, I agree with Robin T, the low drones really complement the high melody. Bravo!!

Steve, this melody sounds so fine over top these low drones.  Nicely played!
