Re: Oktoberfest tunes

On this side of the pond that tune is more associated with Europe than with Germany - it's the European hymn.

Re: Oktoberfest tunes

One more: in Germany you get the crowd singing and clapping with "was sollen wir trinken" or Dutch " wat zullen we drinken". Works on the pipes in B-minor.

Wild Rover is a well known Schunkelwalzer and Singalong in Germany under the name "An der Nordseeküste". The melody fits the scale very well.

Re: How to tell the person talking to you doesn't know anything about bagpipes....

But what about the correct pronounciation of "loch" and "tachum"? In all audio messages from your side of the pond everybody says "takum" instead of tachum :crazy:

Just for the fun of it, :wave:

Re: Some controversy over the Green Hills of Tyrol

May i add something slightly offtopic on a sideline? Guess how a 4/4 march with pickup-notes gets written when they file it under retreat marches? Have a look at "The Meeting of the Waters" in Scots...

Re: How many songs?

I think that saying a number of tunes is a misleading information - like comparing a battery to a power station (or AG to any pibroch).

When I tinker a set of 4 little strathspeys followed by 4...

Re: Drone Movement. Possible to small of a bag?

IMHO it's not the bag size but your breathing. You need to study steady blowing. I recommend to play in front of a big mirrow to watch your breathing. Don't play tunes only long notes and - most...

Re: Favourite bagpipe note

Low A - because it's the most sonorous and rich sounding note (besides low G of course) and because it's in total harmony with the drones. Playing long low As or landing in such in slow airs or...

Re: Common Tunes by the "Greats"

On each recording of the series "The World's Greatest Pipers" there are sets of 3/4 and 4/4 and 6/8 marches that are exemplary in style and accomplishment and rather easy to play :thumb:

Re: Name of a tune?

That's correct - Gordon joins the tune in the 3rd part. The music is in Seamus MacNeil's 2nd book and - slightly different - in Scots Guards I with the (wrong) titel The Lady's Hornpipe.
