Unfortunately, this class suffered from some technical difficulties, but we were able to salvage quite a bit of good stuff! Today we review student performances of Melbank's salute with the great Jack Taylor himself, and then we move on to a lesser-known tuned called "Lord MacDonald's Lament."
This was our first 2013 Set Tunes class, where we covered two of the Silver Medal tunes. Melbank's is a repetitive tune, where the beauty is in making the most of the repetition. All the Men is a tune that requires your own interpretation, as it comes from the ancient Campbell Canntaireachd collection.
