SCOTCH RAMBLE [1], THE. AKA and see "High Way to Eglinton (The)," "Highway to Eglintoune (The)." English, Jig (6/8 time). D Major (Winder): C Major (Thompson). Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. A different “Scotch Ramble” appears in John Johnson’s Two Hundred Favourite Country Dances, vol. 8 (London, 1758). This “Scotch Ramble” was first published by Charles and Samuel Thompson in their Compleat Collection, vol. 3 (London, 1773). A version appears in the 1801 commonplace book of Abel Shattuck (Colrain, Mass.), and in Seth Johnson's (Woburn, Mass.) early 19th century fife manuscript. In England, it can be found in the Winder manuscript collection (as “The Scotch Bramble”). The ‘A’ part is similar to the Irish jig “Kinnegad Slashers (The).”
