The East Neuk of Fife at 136bpm!

I was planning a track to record this week when the The East Neuk of Fife sprang to mind from J. Scott Skinner’s ‘The Harp and Claymore’ Collection. I was just going though the variations when I noticed the tempo – 136bpm! It is ridiculous. I actually think it is too fast – I preferred 130bpm but in homage to the great man and composer here it is at 136 🙂 You can listen to it below on Soundcloud and I video it as well.

    Simon could you play it again sometime at a slower tempo as I agree it is far too fast and the melody is lost at that speed. Great technique however !
