Re: Split chanter stock video.

I'm 100% in favor of this. This is one of the best things about some of the smallpipe chanter stocks I've had. Keep the reed safe and all that...

Re: Chromatic bagpipe chanter

Indeed, this is a method I use when I want to play a tune that contains C and/or F naturals exclusively with no C#/F#, but the appeal here is the ability to cleanly play both C# and C natural, as...

Re: Transposition in sheet music

*you'll probably find the help you need here, but just in case another forum would be useful to you- Chiff and Fipple is a good one where lots of Uilleann pipers hang out.

Re: Parting Glass, 2nd part
