Re: Naill chanter with a Troy reed

I have and still am. I've used brand new Nail chanters and the one I have now is around 10 years old. Never had any major problems-sounds nice.

Barry,

What's the PEI connection to these pipes? Being from the island and mainly Scottish ancestry...you never know, I might be connected to them.

Troy's Wedding

What other four parted jigs have you heard or played along with Troy's Wedding? I'm thinking of Banjo Breakdown but I'm looking for other suggestions.

Re: First tune on GHB?

Me too!

It was a long time ago but I'm pretty sure it was Scots Wha Have. I used to play the Green Book kind of as a set as well. Still remember every tune for some reason.

Re: grainger campbells

My G&C's are from 1969 and they tune very low on the bass drone whether I use cane or synthetic. I've had a ton of great comments on their sound though.

Re: What makes 'expressive' playing?

What I think of is to pay attention to the idioms and rhythms but don't play like a mechanical robot either. Feel the music; feel the groove.
