Default Feel - good notes

Just putting this one out to see how others feel.
I just love any tunes that use Low G , I reckon the low G is a much under utilised note and every time I hear it in a tune it makes the hairs on the back of my neck stand up in delight! Not so much a birl but more a straight out Low G , to me it's just such a delightful sound and was wondering if others "get off" on particular notes?

Just depends on which pipe is being played.

100% agree on low G. I've even deliberately sought out sheet music for tunes I've heard that have prominent low Gs.

Some tunes that come to mind that have great low Gs
  • Cockney Jocks
  • Mrs. Lily Christie
  • Bonny Indore
  • Bengullion
  • Caber Feidh

What would be on your list?

But when I'm playing my smallpipes with D drones - it's all about Fs. Top Deck in Perth is probably my favorite on that account.

This is but one... of the most glorious aspects to...
and about... The Great Beast!! :)

To each... and all... there is a particular... note... or
sound ... or tune... that transcends all... and raises
the blood... and the hair... and churns the hearer...

And... ain't it just grand?! ... Ain't it just!! :)

Just got done playing The Ferryman's Reel. It's got some nice low G spots too.

The B part of "Bonny Dundee" I always really loved because of the low G. Starts on a low G, then ALL of those taorluaths and the grips. I make sure I *really* own those low Gs in those ornaments. Also helps keep me from rushing.

Many thanks to those who have responded, I've really enjoyed reading them, not to mention a few new tunes to check out!
Especially like Cockney Jocks, so I reckon that will be on the agenda very soon.
