Bat Out of Yell
I love Shetland reels for their rhythmic drive and swagger, also their slightly unusual melody lines. Mandolin and tenor banjo are my instruments and I’ve composed quite a few tunes in various genres over the years. Bat Out Of Yell is the outcome of my quest to compose a reel tune in the Shetland style. Apologies to Meatloaf for parodying the title of his 70’s hit, and to everybody else for the dreadful pun. Hope you enjoy playing the tune.
