Default Re: The Times Being What They Are...

What was that about paupers being critical stinkers? I would like you to know, I can play the wrong notes upon my pipes with the best or is that worst of average pipers. Why if I wasn't afloat in unrequested gig offerings where I need to learn new (to me) tunes that are nearly mearly abominable when played upon the pipes I would be having much less fun trying to get my sausage grabbers to cover and uncover the whole holes on the chanters properly.

However, I have a partially practical protective position plague pipers piping can take. We treat the assemble mob of pipe music affectionanadoes like radioactive elements where Time, Distance and Shielding are used to ensure our safety. They get placed in a protected position wearing personal protective equipment whilst we carry on with the duties of a Piper.

But as an aside, does anyone know who to blame and fault for Anchors Aweigh being arranged upon such a fine instrument as that Bagpipes. It would seem that Bastinado would be too fine a punishment for that individual and Keel Hauling should be reinstated.... and yes, I'm adding the deck swabbing monstrosity to the reprehensible requests list.

I need more grog for this...

If one has a High B, G# and several of the other usual accidentals (Suspects), Anchors Aweigh can be correctly played. At least I never got any complaints about it it, especially not form the Dining In I played at once for the Office Of Naval Intelligence (true story).
