  1. I've been going through the Struan Robertson's Salute classes and have worked my way up to the crunluath doubling. i have a question about the music in this section. At the very end of the second measure of each line, just before the D gracenote on B, there is a low A. Is that correct, or should it be a low G like in the taurlouath doubling? Ditto for the 4th measure of each line. Thanks for your help.
