*This is a MILLING SONG. These songs were used by groups as they worked the wool cloth prior to cutting and sewing. They would sit in a circle with a scarf-like piece of cloth that had ends sewn together. On the beat, all pull back and pound the cloth, pushing it forward on the table and pounding it on the next beat.
*GRAPHICS are colorful and interactive.
*TAP to sing along in English on one page and TAP to sing along in Gaelic on the other page.
*RHYTHM: This would be a practice song for "timka".TAP to have rhythms light up and positive sound will be heard.
*FORM: look for patterns that create the form of AB. Tap them and the A part will light up Red and have a high pitched "yum" voiced. The B part will light up Black and have a lower pitched "yum" voiced.
*MELODY: Contains (so,-la,-ti,-do-re-mi-fa). There is only ONE ti in the whole song, making it great for prepare and present. Tap it, it lights up and a "yum" is heard. There are also 1st and 2nd endings.
