Interestingly, I don't believe Amazing Grace was intended for pipes when it was written.


My favorite bagpipe tune is "Black Bear"

Highland whiskey is my favorite

The Lament for McSwain of Roaig will be played at my funeral.

I love pipes!

Most of my family and friends think I'm weird though.

I like the piobrached the most. I also like slow airs & jigs a lot. I have my own set of Drumrand pipes, but haven't played in a long time.

Do you play the pipes Beltfedleadhead? I could some lessons.

Yup, that's my gun, my pipes and my kilt.

I'd give lessons, but no one can tell the difference anyhow, so you might as well buy a set and have at it.

ETA: Yes, and my sgian dubh, as well.

No kidding. Being 1/4 Scottish (McBrane Clan) my in-laws COMPLETELY surprised my new bride and I at our wedding ceremony by having the pipes lead us from the altar playing 'Scotland The Brave'. Not ashamed to say I cried a wee bit

appreciated and enjoied!

right clicked saved!

Choked up? It's the strong fealing that is put into the tunes. The people that are playing the pipes play them with meaning.

I get choked up because I'm Irish and the pipes somehow make me long for home beleve it or not.
