Bagpipe Tune Of The Month For The Royal Scots Polka
November 24, 2008

I have chosen the tune Kilworth Hills for this mailing. It was composed by Pipe Major George MacLennan and is one of my favorite tunes.

I have developed two more tutorials, which I am releasing with this mailing. Both tutorials ship with FREE SHIPPING

  • Piobaireachd Technique This is an excellent resource for pipers who want to play Piobaireachd with good solid embellishments. The lessons come in the form of a PDF text document with hyperlinks to relevant audio and video files, which I use to demonstrate, further explain or emphasize certain points.
  • Bagpipe Maintenance This tutorials is also presented in PDF text document with hyperlinks to relevant audio and video files.

Wishing you all the best and Happy Piping.
Bill Robertson

PS - Pipeline BBC, Radio Scotland:
Radio Scotland have a weekly broadcast called Pipeline. There website has the following statement, "The definitive pipe music program, featuring news and recordings from the piping world". CLICK HERE to go to the Pipeline web site

The program changes each week at the weekend and lasts just under the hour. Normally it contains quite a lot of mainly good solo piping (sometimes other that Highland), some bands, news, and featured extracts from top contests both solo and band shortly after the events. Some pipers have rather too high a pitch and as a result a thin sound, and odd lapses in rhythm etc., which we all have some more than others. Still, we can all learn from perceptive listening.
