The East Neuk Of Fife At 136Bpm!

Recommended Posts

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 hear and watch it here.

Yes, a wee bit quick alright though I'm sure you enjoyed the challenge, as did I, listening to it!

I'm exhausted! A truly unreasonable tempo, and amazing performance. It must have been Skinner's party piece.
