Default Re: What is your favorite tune?

I don't know if other people are like this, but I'll get a certain tune stuck in my brain (in a good way) and I'll find myself humming it at odd times and playing it whenever I get a chanter in my hands, or the pipes in my armpit.

For a while now it's been Lament For Captain MacDougall.

I heard it at a Games a couple years ago, went online and listened to several different versions, and got it going on the pipes. I find myself singing it to myself, it's such a lovely tune!

Another tune that I just love the sound of on the pipes is a retreat I wrote. The first part has loads of F's and when my F is singing against the drones it's a very nice tune.

In jazz too I tend to like the ballads, the slow tunes.
