The long-anticipated Book Two of the legendary piper Gordon Duncan‘s tune collection of marches, polkas, jigs, piobaireachd, slow airs, dances and reels.
Many of Gordon Duncan’s compositions were missed out of the first book of sheet music (Gordon Duncan’s Tunes), published in 2007. The Trust used the ‘missing tunes’ and some of Gordon’s more iconic arrangements to create Book 2.
The book contains photos of Gordon Duncan as well as the sheet music, which includes Gordon’s now infamous arrangement of AC/DCs “Thunderstruck” (in full).
This is a must have for all pipers.
