Re: World's Qualifier

I really enjoyed the first part of the qualifiers. I too checked the volume when FMM started playing. Then I counted. Hope to catch some more this morning, then the finals tomorrow. :thumb:

Re: Can anyone give me a tune list?

The second tune is actually Out of the Air, a jig by Murray Blair. The third tune is the jig, Rocking the Baby. I don't have very many jigs in my book yet, but I do have these two. :thumb: Thanks

Re: A Lament for Captain Goddard

Thank you for remembering those lost in Afghanistan. As a father of a solder whose Combat Team lost 14 members, we will not forget. Beautiful tune and video.

Re: The Bruising Bull - A Comedic Jig

Nice tune. The two parts kinda left me sensing unfinished business, so two more parts would be nice. But, if no expansion, then it might be paired with "Out of the Air"! :smirk:

Re: Playing for other pipers

Re: 5.11 Tactical Duty Kilt

I placed my order, mostly because my Captain and several other officers said that it would look good. I will wear it for fun and training, but the good kilt for piping.

Re: What draws competitors to highland games

For solo pipers, it would be more attractive for me to attend if there is more than one tune for competition in grade 4. At least a 2/4 and 6/8 or slow air. Makes it worth driving. I know that it...
