Default GHB tutor in Spanish?

I have a problem: Seems I am going to teach GHB to several members of the Paraguayan Army HQ Band.

Those musicians are unlikely to have English, so can anyone point me toward a GHB piping manual in Spanish ?

I was hoping the CoP had a Spanish version of the Green book, but it seems that ALL tutors and books have disappeared from their web site ;-3(

Try the Queretaro City Pipe Band
or St Patricks Battalion Pipe Band

So I started my own translation, doing an OCR of the .pdf I have, then using that as a basis the Google Translation of each page.

Only remains to put all the music and piping terms where they belong, and restore all that OCR messed up...

You might give them a call - I believe they are still selling off stock on hand but not reprinting it. A real shame; the newest edition of the CoP tutor was the best yet, and better IMO than the Piping Centre one.

I contacted them through the CoP web site, but have not had any reply from them ;-3(

So I'll just go ahead, and go on with my translation which is now at the proof-reading stage.
