In this session we take a hard look at the ALAP/ASAP principle and try to zero in and master the short note. We then take this knowledge and apply it to a varying array of short note lengths as we travel from idiom to idiom. Marches, Strathspeys, and reels are all dot cut tunes yet the short note changes in each idiom. So if you've ever been told to "hold your dots", come have a look at what they actually mean.
In this session we take a look at 3 small 4/4 Marches. Crags of Mount Tumbledown is a very majestic 3 parted march. Old Rustic Bridge give us a nice key change from Crags and has a strong melody line. Lord Lovat's Lament is a slow air turned march that works well in both genres. All excellent additions to the solo or band repertoire!
