Default Re: Mini MSR competition. Something I'd like to see.

A lot of the two parters seem to have more engaging melodies than their finger bending four and six part cousins. Learning to string together the march, strathspey and reel could also help develop musicality for student pipers.

I could be and am willing to be wrong on this idea.

I agree with this wholeheartedly. It would allow for more creative freedom in choosing MSR tunes and allow for more challenges as a player. I can think of a dozen combinations off the top of my head.

If they would agree, I would agree!

Quite possibly one of the only Iranian players of the Highland Pipes in the world.
