Re: Seeking "Rogue's March" for GHB

It hadn't occurred to me to look on Wikipedia for sheet music, but, yes, that's it, and you are correct, it can be transposed up one note giving a C# and F#. Thanks.

Re: Seeking "Rogue's March" for GHB

Re: Startup question about small pipes

Having read this thread through, I'd agree with Patrick and Calum 100%. The smallpipe reed is not like the Great Highland bagpipe reed and should not be treated in the same way. It's a lot more...

Re: Jiggification ok?

If it's an adaptation of a known tune, then the tune still belongs to the original composer. If you can get a deal with the composer, then you may be able to claim partial content as an arranger...
