Tune Of The Month for Aug 09 - Shores Of Argyll
August 01, 2009

I have chosen a favourite tune of mine Shores Of Argyll as the bagpipe lesson for the Aug 09 mailing. I hope you enjoy the lesson and remember to contact me via the website should you have any questions about the tune.

We have launched the website affiliate program this month. By advertising Bagpipe Tutorial Products on your website, you can earn 40% commission for each sale made from your website. This link will explain how the program works.

Bruce Campbell has a website and he offers a monthly FREE piping magazine called Piping World. The magazine is emailed to you monthly in PDF format and has very interesting articles.

Bruce states the following about the magazine on his website:
PIPING WORLD features archival quality articles on all aspects of piping around the world - including solo piping, pipe bands, Piobaireachd, history and topical issues.

The August magazine has a feature on how I use technology for teaching bagpiping and you can download a copy of the August 09 magazine from this link

Take care and enjoy the lesson.

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.
