Fred's Reel Pipes

After 40 years piping, I've got my first and probably only set of reel pipes (small pipes) in A. I am still sorting out the co-ordination of the bellows arm, but it's ealry doors - give a bloke a chance - but after 3 days I can safely say I will be able to master the technique, even if it's to be ab...

The Truce at Garlabank

In June 1559, following the Reformation riots at Perth, the French troops were marching towards St. Andrews from Falkland in Fife. On 13 June a Protestant force of 3,000, led by Lord James, Lord Ruthven, the Earl of Rothes, the Lothian lairds of Ormiston, Calder, Haltoun, Restalrig, and Colstoun, wi...

Who's Daniel Hoag?

Once in a while, I write a tune off a title I have been exposed to or think up before hand. This title came to me when I awoke this morning, as you do! "But who's Daniel Hoag", you may ask. Well, that's a good question well presented and no amount of water torture or bribery will get it out of me, m...

Re: Seudan Luachmhòr

Hi, did you manage to check out my site, www.philamor.co.uk, as I haven't had a contact through that from you yet.

I have taken your MP3 and set it to score, so I would like you to check that.

Re: MacArthur's Farewell to The Cape Town Highlanders

I can hear this as a more flowing 9/8, anyone else get that vibe?

Re: Seudan Luachmhòr

Aye, Graham, that's much better, the MP3. I'll do your MP3 on Celtic Pipes and let you see the finished score.

If you want to check out my website and contact me there, I'll be able to pass the score along, OK?

The Guardian

And yet another wee ditty. Celtic Pipes needs to be tweaked a fair bit to get it to play the embellishments as they should be, not too crushed, but otherwise it does a fair job all round, don't you think? The Guardian - make of it what you will - to me it's reminiscent of a comfort, something one fe...

A wee bit of a tussle, perhaps!

A melee is a bit of a confused fight, a tussle or tiff or a disturbance, a rumpus, a commotion.

This wee tune isn't confused, I don't think, but the title came to me whilst composing it, so it stuck!

Hooray for stuck.

Everything you are or do has a key element, right?

The main component to anything is crucial, right?

Another phrase for the crucial, main component is the title of this tune.

Re: Seudan Luachmhòr

Hi there. I cannot help but notice some of your note groups do not add up to a dotted crotchet, your time signature rule, indeed some are more and some are less, so this makes for a tricky one to render. Do you have an audio file of your intended tune? I am very happy to help out with the score from...

There's a wee boat in the water!

There's a wee boat in the water, It's called 'Col Iso Ell'. From whence came this curious craft, now swaying on the gentle swell. 'Col Iso Ell', a name of curious hale. Perhaps it's from a far off land, from which adventurous tales abound; Or yet, maybe from a port less grand. 'Col Iso Ell', such in...

Muse - that force which gives one inspiration.

I reckon most people will have a muse of some description, even MacLowrie.
