Fred's Reel Pipes

Post by philamor » Sat Jun 22, 2019 10:24 am

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 able to entertain myself in a sound proofed room.

However, the creative juices are flowing since acquiring them, and this tune, a celebration of piping in general I suppose, has come forth.

I hope you enjoy. It's not too difficult, a little dexterity required, nothing more, really.

Really, Reel pipes - did you see what I did there?

Amaze myself, sometimes (yeah, only sometimes)

If you cannot write a tune down that you can play so that they are identical, how can you truly say you know the tune!
