Bagpipes and flying..

Ok so I have been asked to play at an event I will be attending which requires flying to get there.

I looked at your revision and I see what u mean, I am still learning the art of tune composition so I dont always pick up on those things clearly if it sounds good.... I like the changes to the last part but not particularly to the 3rd and 4th parts but, thank...

A nice, driving hornreel indeed (could be reel or hornpipe--these days who can tell them apart stylistically?). Gives a lot of power without asking too much of the fingers. Good job--and not just for a second tune. Don't forget to compose a few pointed marches, and some light, highly melodic airs i...

Breakaway

Hey everyone,
Here is a tune I wrote a few months ago. all the parts are pretty interchangeable if you think one of the parts works better in a different place or you just want it shorter, any part can pretty much be skipped over so as to fit your liking. any feedback would be appreciated!
Enjoy!

Nice tune! I would suggest that you switch the birl on low a (in the end of each part) for a gracenote on b. it would sound nice ending in the minor key.
