Slow in the... or any... new tune acquisition... is the way...

Sorry Pip01. Didn't see this till just now. "Our Natives" was composed by Simon Blackshaw and can be found in 'A Collection of Contemporary Bagpipe Music'. I recently heard the tune and liked it and found that a couple vendors still have the book in stock.

It is much simpler than Steam Train......there's only 2 parts for the most part and a short section for 4 pipers.

The hardest thing about the tune is the repetition.

Don't take life seriously! You'll never get out of it alive!
