GOLDEN LOCKS (Nighean bhuidhe bhoidheach). Scottish, Reel. B Dorian. Standard tuning (fiddle). AB. "The editor perfectly remembers this sprightly air to be one of the first of which he has any recollection, either sung to him by a nurse or some other person. It was, however, very imperfect, but constantly dwelt upon his mind till modelled into its present shape" [Fraser].
