CLAN CHATTAN. Scottish, Pipe Quickstep (4/4 time). A Mixolydian. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB. Composed in 1862 by Scots fiddler-composer J. Scott Skinner (1843-1927) as a march for the bagpipes (whose scale is fixed in mixolydian mode). Skinner's hand written note indicates he expected that fiddlers would play it in A major if they preferred. An early manuscript copy [1] of the melody with hand-ruled staves was sent to Keith Norman MacDonald, folded, with the reverse side used as envelope (addressed, with stamp affixed).

Printed source: Skinner (Harp and Claymore), 1904; p. 40 (includes variation sets).
