Dance to Your Daddy is in two sections, the first a rounded sort of song time, the second in what I think of as reel time apart from having only three crotchets to the bar instead of four. In other words, play the first bar just the same as the first few notes of “Miss Girdle”. I timed myself playing and worked out metronome markings, 90 minims per minute and 144 crotchets per minute, but these are just to give an idea. I’ve not written any gracenotes, though in fact I always play this one on the big pipes with pretty standard, though light, gracing.
