Scotsman Over The Border is a lovely Irish jig in D major, and it is suitable for newcomers to the genre. The melody is easy and it has only a few jumps on the harmonica for the larger melodic intervals. The melody can be effectively embellished and playing techniques such as octaves, drones and vamping can be used.
We play Scotsman Over The Border in 1st position with a harmonica in the key of Low D in Standard Richter tuning.
The tune has two parts A and B and each part is played twice.
Try it out! And remember to have fun!
