SHE'S SWEETEST WHEN SHE'S NAKED. AKA and see "Miss Faw's Minuet." Scottish, Air (3/4 time). A Minor. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. The air appears in James Oswald's (1711-69) collection Curious Scots Tunes (1741, p. 35) and in the first volume of his Caledonian Pocket Companion (1760). The tune, however, predates Oswald, and can be found in the music manuscript . A pentatonic piece whose risqué title was acceptable in the late 17th and early 18th century. "She's Sw'etest when She's Naked" was entered into the 1768 music manuscript collection of James Gilllespie (The Gillespie Manuscript of Perth), with the alternate title "<incipit title="load:faw" width=850 link="https://tunearch.org/wiki/Miss Faw's Minuet">Miss Faw's Minuet</incipit>."
