OK, everybody. Now I have the music to I Am Proud to Play a Pipe. Step 1 Complete.
Next I have to listen to it a lot – I have Bagpipe Player software to help me with that.
And I have to try out some of these strange cadences and grace notes. At the outset it almost seems as though I will need a different mindset and even a different pair of hands to play piobaireachd. The whole thing is so different from light music. I will tap the talent from the Piobaireachd list on the Bob Dunsire forums.
