Re: French Tunes

OK, I think Je Vous Salue, Marie is doable. Do you have a source for Vive La rose, or did you mean "Lla vie en Rose"?

Re: "Orphan" Notes

Calum I think I understand what you wrote, but my experience is that the same chanter can achieve the "extra" notes with some reeds and not with others- wouldn't that seem to indicate that it's a...

"Orphan" Notes

I have found that the notes not-among-the-standard-9 don't seem to work witrh every reed and certainly mot in every chanter. For example, I can cross-finger a C natural on any of my chanters with...

Re: Musings on a probably impractical but compelling fantasy bagpipe
