Today while perusing the "Old Geezer's Bagpipe Page" someone mentioned "Orange and Blue" played as a 6/8 march. Funny thing the tune in 6/8 that they were talking about was "Hot Punch". I've played both of the tunes for years and never really thought about the fact that they were related. In looking around for a tune to arrange, I found one called "The Duke of Gordon" which I know as a Strathspey. In fooling around with it, I found that I could make this tune a better jig than a march. See what you think. Here is the picture and below is the file to download.
