Mark, can you double-check this?  It doesn't work in Dm as-is.  I'm thinking maybe you mean:

Yes double stops can be entered by using square brackets - for example:

Some folk might be a little nervous about contributing when the chords are written in. For the sake of focusing on the melody, here is the tune without any chords.

I like putting the chords in. Let's do it after the tune is finished so that the chord structure does not dictate the direction of the tune

Mark, I only stuck the chords there in the first place so you could hear my version of what I thought you had meant to write and OK it or veto it!   :spin:

For myself, when I'm writing tunes I like putting the chords in as I go because it helps me to perceive the overall structure of the tune and keeps me from getting too far off the track (the first strathspey I wrote, before I'd thought of doing this, has about 6 different musical ideas in it, any of which probably would have made a decent tune but together they're a mish-mash.  If I can find it I think I'll post it in the abc section so you all can laugh at it).  I'm fine with writing these tunes without chords and adding them later, though, especially if you think the chords are keeping people from contributing. -Steve

Steve, First of All. The minor change you made is great.
Second - you hit the nail dead on. I was thinking the chords slowed some folks down. That was my original reason and the part about dictating the progression of the tune kind of popped into my head.

Post the Mish Mash bro - gotta hear it. Besides it might not be Mish Mash to someone else. I firmly believe that a tune starts with the beginning. The rest of the tune writes itself. Perhaps you have six great tunes on your hands.

By the way, I have enjoyed everything that everyone has contributed so far. You make a good point. If someone see's a different direction that might entail a minor tweak - suggest it as you did.

You want to put your chords just in front of the notes or figure you want them over (under) on the printed page.

Also, I suppose this isn't an absolute but with strathspeys it's more traditional to play them ABAB rather than AABB; I'd substitute a double bar for your repeat. -Steve

I decided to finish this one. I had some stuff swimming around in my head and I had to let it loose. The best tempo suited for this tune is probably 72. I imagine that I will work quite hard on the B part and try to find some bowings that won't get me tangled. Once the B part is solid, I can tackle the A part with relative comfort.

I could use some help on the Chords in the B part. Please take a peek at them.

We created another one! Let's see how it sounds a week from now.

I'm very new to Strathspeys, but isn't a more usual rhythm

D<F F>A d>A c<G  | ? i.e. short long long short long short short long.

I have a sum total of three Strathspeys to look at (Cutting Bracken, Captain Campbell, Highland Whisky) and they all contain this form somewhere.
