Re: Auld Adam

Adam--that first reply was to Lloyd. I just saw your answer, and...why didn't I think of that?! I searched under "old adam bagpipe score" and the tune immediately popped up in Ceol Sean. Just...

Re: Auld Adam

Thanks for the reply. I tried both those sources. Unfortunately, the book is out of print and is only available from Amazon UK as a very expensive used copy, and a search for the tune on pipetunes.ca...

Auld Adam

I have been looking for the score of the 6/8 march Auld Adam, which is listed in some places as Traditional, but was probably written by PM Donald Shaw Ramsey, maybe in the 1940's. You can hear it at...

Re: Newer bagpipe notation software for Mac?

Thanks for the suggestions. I never thought of partitioning my hard drive as a way to preserve access to older software. Would require restarting, though, each time I wanted to use it, wouldn't it?

Newer bagpipe notation software for Mac?

I'm interested in learning if anyone knows more than I do--which is not setting the bar very high--about newer bagpipe notation software for Macintosh. I have been using Barfly for years. It's a...

Re: Glengarries too hot! Any solutions?

So far, ice cream hats (from a distance, who could tell the difference?) and pith helmets seem to be the only suggestions that are even remotely possible. Actually, the idea of grommets seems...

Re: Glengarries too hot! Any solutions?

Thanks for the ideas. My sympathy to those who must wear feather bonnets. Perhaps my band should wear those for a while, and then the wool glengarries would feel cool and comfortable by comparison! ...

Glengarries too hot! Any solutions?

My band wear black wool glengarries (sp?) which look smart and are fine in cool weather. But when it gets hot they aren't too comfortable. We're trying to figure out an alternative. Ball caps don't...

Teaching adult bagpipe students

I suspect most bagpipe students, in the U.S. at least, are adults. I'm relatively new at teaching, and most of my students are over 30.

My experience so far is that many students tend to go so far...

FS: Piper Ghillies, Size 11 - $50

In excellent shape, clean, worn less than half a dozen times. Metal tap heels replaced with all rubber heels, and I've had them stretched slightly in width. They're still too small for me!

Re: What to wear in cold weather?

I should have said that we all wear layers of long underwear (on top). Bottoms according to the individual. One of our older female pipers once wore flesh-colored tights and they were invisible from...

What to wear in cold weather?

Kilt jokes aside, I'm curious to learn what other bands wear for parades in cold weather. We (Nittany Highland Pipe Band, State College, PA) wear black commando sweaters, but they're not very warm...

Re: dupuytrens contracture

I suggest you not go to a GP or regular orthopedist for this problem, but instead try to find someone who specialized in musicians' problems. This is an unofficial sub-specialty of orthopedics and...

Re: Forearm Pain

Yea, I'm one of the docs on the forum, and have a similar problem myself. It sounds like tennis elbow, which is a misleading term, because the problem is actually in the tendon of the main muscle...

Re: Pipers' Hernias

This isn't the place for me to play doctor (even though I am one). Abdominal pain can be difficult to diagnose. If it were always easy, they wouldn't have to invent all those fancy tests. It is true,...

Re: Pipers' hernias

I guess when the Scots invented the bagpipe as an instrument of war, they didn't consider that it might be hazardous to the player as well. It perhaps isn't surprising that, considering the sustained...

Re: Pipers' Hernias

I am very impressed by the number of pipers who have had this problem. Of course, inguinal hernias are common enough, and any random group of men is going to have some, but this seems to be a real...

Re: Pipers' hernias

I couldn't agree more with those who say a Conan the Barbarian reed is not necessary for good sound. First, it's more tiring and less fun to play. Second, it inevitably detracts from technique, when...

Re: Pipers' hernias

By the replies so far, this doesn't seem to be a very common problem. BTW, in reading about this topic in the medical literature, the current feeling seems to be that all hernias result mainly from a...
