Re: John "Jock" Nisbet

Jock sold me my first pipes in 1983. He sold me a set of half-mounted Kintail pipes, made by Greig Sharp. They were really nice pipes! He was a kind soul who went out of his way to help his...

Re: Name that tune!

Hello! Seems to me the tune is or is a variation of "The High Road to Linton."

Re: Recommend a Kilt Shop?

They have provided...

Re: Battle Of Britain Dinner tunes?

Perhaps other tunes of the era such as The Tipperarry Song, and perhaps Abide With Me, instead of AG for the memorial tune?

Re: Taps on pipes?

Not to dispute or opine one way or the other but, I have found that if you explain that Flowers of the Forest is a traditional tune from the 1600's and that it is a traditional tune played in the...

Re: Seal skin sporran. Can you sell in the USA?

Since PETA is not part of the Department of Justice, nor is it an agency or institution which is charged with, or its primary role is the enforcement of law, I believe that you are safe.

Re: Your 2019 setup?

Hi Will! The EzeeDrone Increased Absorption Inverted Bass reed is still very new, but it has locked seamlessly with the older regular EzeeDrone Tenors. I only had to calibrate it, a millimeter or...

Just my opinion, but false fingering should be avoided. Take your time, use a metronome if needed. Begin slowly and build up to the required tempo. As Calum II stated, it can be done and is done.

Re: Four part (maybe five, max) Pibroch recommendations?

A very easy tune which has a very nice melody and is easy to memorize is Donald McLeod's "Queen Elizabeth The Second's Salute."

I always get compliments from the judges and those in higher grades...

I would actually recommend the opposite! Get yourself the very best instructor you can find, and have the instructor bring you into it.

The most success I have had is with a world class piper and...
