Do you have keys to extend the range of your smallpipe chanter?

Here's the "compressed" version often heard on pipes of a Scottish persuasion. http://www.therealviperpiper.com/viewtopic.php?t=1494 Now you can argue about who stole the tune from whom and ruined it by modifying it to fit the instrument.

Best wishes.

There are lots of smallpipe-friendly settings of Lark In The Morning out there.

If you get to Cape Breton and can find a few sessions pipers the top five maybe
1. Gille Crubach (AKA Calum Crubach, Miss Drummound of Perth)
.2.Devil in the Kitchen
3. The Black Mill
4. Scotsville Reel
5. The Wedding Reel (AKA Hamish the Carpenter)

Coincidentally 4 out of the five (1,3,4,5) are found in my first book,
Just saying,
