Two swingy jazz inflected trad tunes from the "The Scottish Guitar Tutor Book" "Neale Slessor Thompson" and "The West Coaster". The first tune was written by Jim Sutherland when he was in the Easy Club, which included Jack Evans on guitar ( who wrote the preface for the guitar book). The tune is a two step and is in the key of C which is unusual for Scottish music. It is a syncopated, jazzy and fun tune with many twists and turns. The second tune is written by Angus Grant who is a great veteran West Highand fiddle player and teacher. It is a bouncy hornpipe in the key of G with lots of arpeggios in it and well suited to the guitar. The B part is in double time to give a swingy and jazzy feel. Jazz chords can be played over the top Major and ninor 6ths and 7ths. The double bass player is Brian Shiels who has recorded with Martin Taylor.
