To David Strong (hi!), and anyone else interested,

I had planned to mention one brief thing about playing strathspeys, but by
now I've read Elke Baker's eloquent testimonial. I've been among those
calling for her to encore a strathspey, and I second what she says about
rhythm. The one big thing I was planning to say (but now looks rather small)
also has to do with rhythm: Stre...t.....ch the dotted notes!

Hope this helps,
