Re: The McCullough Bagpipe Tune Book

If I recall correctly, there were some versions of the McCullough tutor that had an open C in the tutor section. That is three fingers up and only the D finger down.

Just about the only tune there that you could use for a funeral is Samhradh Samhradh.

Re: Favorite blowstick? And worth it to repair a blowstick?

Wrap a bit of insulation tape around it. Will be okay for years.

Re: How many lines?

Re: How to deal with Flat Cs
