I. Embellishments
3:40 – 1. Ending of part has a embellishment – 4 x 16th note a the end of Part A
5:00 – 2. 16 notes are bowed instead of slurring – bowing 16 notes is very common in strathspeys – gives a very percussive style
6:45 – 3. Fingered embellishments –

1 °add a grace note to the b in the A-part – several ways – flick of the finger – Add a grace note with the C# or D – very light to make the B note pop out

2° Add a grace note to the the open A note – same as above – either the second or third finger

3° Couple of graces on the same spots on the B and open A and in the second of the tune – by pulling off of on the open A

4° add a grace note or cut to THE open quarter e

5° add a drone to the open e with playing the e on the open à string with the 4 finger – when doing this start with a grace note with the c#.
excercise open a to 4 with drone on the open e, 1 to 4 with drone, 2 to 4 with drone,… And Back
