We had our monthly Monday meeting last night at the Bagpipe Museum in  
Morpeth and in trying to demonstrate the ideal choyte discoverd that the Keel  
was the best tune to show it in all its pure choyteness. In fact you can  hear 
this on the Pipes of All Nations 78 which featured Anty Charlton doing it  in 
style on that tune.
Someone thought they had spotted me doing it on the Minstrels Fancy but in  
fact I maintain it is a D flourish that Billy Pigg excelled in and was not a  
gratuitous highland gracing but an embellishment that suits the NSP chanter to  
give a real lift to the tune. ( that is the case for the defence m'lud )
