Default Really only one simple bagpipe????


This is an amazing piece and to think it comes from one reeded instrument is incredible. Have a listen. It's amazing what a bagpipe is capable of.

Thanks for posting the link. It is interesting to know that pipers are pushing the instrument.

Personally, it is not the kind of music I listen to.

OK, I didn't get very far... one long trill, and not a controlled or consistent one.

And boy do I know trills! A Baroque Flute Major in my Uni days.

I didn't get very far either. Listened to samples throughout the track but it never varied much. Affected me like fingernails on a chalkboard.

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