Notes     CGP.I have difficulty quite often in assigning a "Rhythm" to a tune,
  and they end up as "miscellaneous" as in this case. The problem here is
  that the tune is not used for a jig or a quadrille dance nowadays (if
  ever) but is very strongly associated with the dance "Nottingham
  Swing",a hop-step dance usually done to Schottisches or Spotty
  Hornpipes eg Keel Row, Nae guid Luck(!a 6/8 tune).
