Da Guizer's March Gideon Stove 1909 D Bm A D Em A D Em A D Bm A D Em A D Em A D D G A D G D Em A D G A D G D Em A D Composed around 1909 by Gideon Stove (1875-1954), who as a young man was offered a chair with the London Philharmonic Orchestra, but who preferred to remain in the Shetlands where he was a much respected musician and teacher. This march was written for the Up Helly Aa procession which was at one time led by a fiddle band, although now by a brass band. A 'guizer' is a masquerader ('disguser'), and costumes are featured in the event. The tune is also used in Shetland for dancing a two-step. www.abcnotation.com/tunes
