Re: Security Tracking Devices

The only long range option I know if off the top of my head, without research, is a device made for kids called a Gizmo, (LG) - in the US it works on Verizon's network. The unit itself is something...

Re: Parting Glass, 2nd part

Yeah, that's how it starts,

It might be worth trying to find it on a streaming service or something- Brian Boru playing it with the Ne'er Do Wells. They're playing it as an Air, it's on their 50th...

Re: head shakers

Not quite the same thing, but one afternoon as I was prepping for a Funeral my 2yr old son walked up behind me, put a hand on my kilt, and said,

"How nice, look good daddy!"

And then whispered,...

Re: Tunes for worships

Tim Cummings has several excellent arrangements of hymns for bagpipe/organ. He arranges them in multiple keys- one thing that's really helpful is that he'll put the organ music in Bb, but write out...

Re: Bit of a 'crack' problem needing some advice please

If you feel adventurous, (and poor,) you might consider:

Mixing wood glue with sawdust of a similar color, (cocobolo if possible,) and slathering that along the crack. Work it into the crack,...

Interesting thought: by using a keyed system, to essentially extend your fingers' spread, probably could get pretty darn long... Look at a contrabass clarinet, saxophone, etc for example...

Re: Bagpipe Refurbish

Re: Surefire Synthetic chanter reed
