Re: The Conundrum

Many thanks for all your replies. I was just curious as I've often notcied it had an unusual beat to it. It was the bass drummer in my old band that told me it was that way because the guy who...

Re: The Conundrum

LOL, don't get me wrong. I love the tune. When I first learned it I was told the guy who composed it had a wooden leg. I thought this was a joke and just wanted to check it out if there was any...

Beechgrove Garden

Does anyone know where I could find a published version of this for the bagpipe? I'm too lazy to work it out myself.

Many thanks.

Hello all,

A couple of weeks ago I was flicking through channels and found myself watching BBC Alba, the Gaelic language channel from the BBC. The was a programme, probably to fill in time...

Re: Best (don't snicker) blended scotch

Grouse is fine, but try Teachers. Similar finish and very pleasant. Black Bottle is an Islay blend with hints of the famous Islay malts. Grants sherry finish is quite nice too.

Re: The Famous Baravan

LOL, I thought that's what he meant. I suppose if you can make a set of small pipes out of aluminium a caravan filled with booze is a small step. :)

Re: The Famous Baravan

Aye, Gordon composed it. If you created it can you not write it doon?

Re: The Famous Baravan

You'll also find it in Bob Mathieson's Fourth book. Although it's wrongly attributed to "trad". I think later books recognised Gordon as composer.

Re: Grampian Police, Turriff 2008

Nice. They did OK in the majors, I think my camera microphone didn't quite do the band justice. You want to hear me tape a mediocre grade 4 band on it! :poke: :hmm:

Can any one do me the favour of naming Deeside Caledonia's Medley opener which they played at Turriff Pipe Band Competition in June 2008? If you could name all of the tunes in the set I'd be much...

Re: Grampian Police, Turriff 2008

I've noticed a few bands doing the longer note at the end. I don't mind it too much. It was a cold day in Turriff that day, only the beer was warm. 3 a can of Tennents! :hmm:

Re: Name that tune

I'd say it was Troy's wedding. I'm not sure where it would be published.

Cheers!

Re: Highland Wedding

I've played it at weddings in the past but don't know if the melody is readily recognisable in Scotland as much as other tunes. Especially those with words associated with them.
