KAIL REETS OF FITTIE, THE. Scottish, Jig (6/8 time). A Minor. Standard tuning (fiddle). AAB. The jig was printed in Aberdeenshire fiddler-composer William Christie's Collection of Strathspeys, Reels, Hornpipes, Waltzes &c. (1820), and is labelled "Old". However old it is, it seems unique to Christie's collection. "Kail reets" were theroot or stump left after the head of the kail has been cut off [1].
