Caledonian Club

Caledonian Club is a Strathspey ... a Celtic dance tune in 4/4 time, easily recognized by the Scotch snap. A Scotch snap is a short note before a dotted note, a short-long rhythm, with the pulse on the shorter beat. In traditional playing, this rhymic pattern is generally exaggerated to enhance the musical expression.

In this video, Steve plays through the entire tune so we can hear the unusual Strathspey rhythm. Learn more about this cool Celtic rhythm here.
