Default Re: Lazy Scores

One thing that I think needs to be mentioned is that there are a ton of books full of piping music which makes it easier for pipers to change their music.

For bands who are more novice, and don't have any great score composers, it is pretty easy to just play the same old drum scores as these are the ones that they have access to. A lot of drummers play Duthart scores as they are readily available. A lot of people have access to Reid Maxwell scores, I have about 10 so they are going to be played. This brings me to another point. If you look at a lot of the drumming books, many of the same tunes are in them. Duthart Book 1 and Something Old, Something New by the Browns both have the following, Lord Alexander Kennedy, Royal Scottish Piper's Society, The Conundrum, The Haughs of Cromdale, Glasgow Week in Hamburg, Cptn Colin Campbell, Lachlan MacPhail.

Unfortunately to bands who don't have the ability or the resources, there are not a lot of books available and those that are available contain a lot of the same tunes. I can't find my Jim Kerr book or I'd compare that with the above.

Many of the lower grade bands can't play a Duthart score (or even shouldn't play one) and there are few books with music they can play so what options do they have?

Peace Through Victory
