Week 31 #tuneoftheweek has seen me write my very first strathspey. I have some feelings of insecurity about this tune as strathspeys wouldn’t be my strongest type of tune by any means. I wasn’t brought up playing or hearing strathspeys so they don’t come naturally to me at all. I’ve lived in Scotland for nearly six years now and so they must be subconsciously seeping into my musical library as I didn’t intend to write a strathspey when I sat down yesterday – it just happened. I’m a bit nervous about Scottish folk hearing this tune – will it sound enough like a strathspey? But then I thought about it and thought I like the tune and that’s all that matters.
