MY FAVORITE DRAM. AKA and see "Highland Bumpkin (A)." AKA - "Ho rò mo bhoban an dràm." Scottish, Slip Jig. G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB'CC'. This tune "is a well-known and popular bacchanalian Highland melody; but Culduthel's set of the words and music are so superior to any the editor has heard, that it is rather fortunate his edition of the air happens to be in print before an imperfect standard came forward" (Fraser).
