The Federal Union

Composed by Lindsay Davidson
Th eFederal Union

Composed for the Baron of Ardgowan, and published in his collection of tunes.


 This tune is very simple to play. All the gracenotes have the same proportion.
The birls are light.
The throws take half the time for the low G from the preceding note. Listen carefully to the video.
Be careful to close the high G gracenotes in the doublings on the beat.
The throws, after the first D, have the same rhythm as the doublings (watch out though, the low G is different).
