You may be in luck. Metalica cover Whiskey in the Jar, which is a trad tune and fits on the GHB chanter. It is in G so you will have to decide how it sounds against A drones but at least it fits. I think there is one C-nat that you would have to cross finger.

Good luck with it,

I would love to see a video of your performance! I got the opportunity to pipe my daughter down the aisle for her postlude it was a lot of fun.

Yep, Enter Sandman works, probs one of their biggest if not the biggest hit they had.

The Unforgiven works to, but is a bit slower, and also, which I think is a riff, Blackened sort of works. Now that is metal!

My experience is that most rock/metal melodies just don't sound great on pipes - especially so if you're playing solo without any sort of backing accompaniment like rhythm guitar or drums.

If this was a client of I'd try to steer them away from it, but then again I once played Sweet Child o Mine at a wedding so what do I know...
