Day 59. This song was my mom's choice of instrumentation and style, Scottish Highlands with whistle, Bodhran drum, fiddle, and others. I listened to a few songs in this style to get a sense of the rhythm and structure, then tried to create something similar. Aside from the obvious bagpipe drone providing the underlying structure, I noticed the harmonies tended to resolve back to the dominant chord during the last bar rather than in the next phrase. For songs in a minor key, they typically use a minor scale with a major 6th. I also noticed that the 2nd note of the scale is rarely used, usually only during runs, but often the phrases jump from the 3rd to 1st. This was a fun chance to explore a very different style!
