Re: Rain Cape

I favor the idea of folding the bottom up. I have a rain cape in size small and on me (5'6") it comes to about mid-calf, if that gives you an idea of how a small might fit you.

Re: Amazing Grace Walk-off

Hm. I always assumed it was some kind of symbolic send-off of the person who died... (aside from all of the practicalities others have mentioned.) Plus the fade-away is a little less jarring than...

Re: When YOU are the father of the bride....

If she's asked him to play the pipes, I assume it's not important to her to have him walk her down the aisle. Many women these days choose to pass on being "given away."

Re: Tenor competition at Alma?

Thanks! I had looked there before on a link from Alma's site, but didn't find all of the stuff I found when I went digging further than I had before.

Tenor competition at Alma?

I know next to nothing about competing, but would like to at least think about the competition at Alma Highland Festival. Unfortunately, my teacher knows nothing about that one, and I don't know who...

Re: Tenor videos?

What about searching for videos of tenor drumming competitions? Definite focus on the tenor drummers, and I like to watch all of the different styles. :)

Re: Ghillie Challum

FWIW, if you are playing for a dancer, the Scottish Official Board of Highland Dance does indeed have instructions on the speed. I don't have my textbook here at the moment, so I will have to tell...

Re: Sit-ups and Arm Exercises

Hi Kasie,

Frankly, I think it's never a bad idea to do situps and lift weights (or, do bodyweight exercises if you don't have access to a set of free weights, and these can be challenging in...

Re: similar to Audacity

Not GHB, no. Vocals and other instruments (violin, whistle, etc.). Still should certainly be loud enough, especially when close to the mic.

Re: Protestant hymns common to Catholic service ?

I'm glad to hear it went well!

Re: Cleaning your kilt?
