Re: Parting Glass, 2nd part

Yeah, that's how it starts,

It might be worth trying to find it on a streaming service or something- Brian Boru playing it with the Ne'er Do Wells. They're playing it as an Air, it's on their 50th...

Re: head shakers

Not quite the same thing, but one afternoon as I was prepping for a Funeral my 2yr old son walked up behind me, put a hand on my kilt, and said,

"How nice, look good daddy!"

And then whispered,...

Re: Tunes for worships

Tim Cummings has several excellent arrangements of hymns for bagpipe/organ. He arranges them in multiple keys- one thing that's really helpful is that he'll put the organ music in Bb, but write out...

Re: Bit of a 'crack' problem needing some advice please

If you feel adventurous, (and poor,) you might consider:

Mixing wood glue with sawdust of a similar color, (cocobolo if possible,) and slathering that along the crack. Work it into the crack,...

Re: Just how low can you go?

Interesting thought: by using a keyed system, to essentially extend your fingers' spread, probably could get pretty darn long... Look at a contrabass clarinet, saxophone, etc for example...

Re: Bagpipe Refurbish

I agree with gaitero, I did my pipes just as he describes two years ago: paint stripper to get the varnish off, toothbrush for the combing, oil, then I did put the parts on a lathe and I spun-on a...

Re: Water bottles and camelpacs

Re: Practice Chanter Recommendations

It may not work for you, but in a similar situation I once established a habit of building a little, "booth," out of couch cushions on the kitchen table. Then I could lean-in to the, "booth," and...

Re: Surefire Synthetic chanter reed

I posted about mine not long ago: I like it for playing on my own, but it's a chore to get set-up, (initial tuning, I mean). Once it's there, it stays, but for me personally: I wouldn't want them for...

Re: Notes in Music?

A good place to start, friend, might be, "bending," notes by sliding your fingers across the holes.

Example: Pumpkin's Fancy
