A great place to find new tunes. If you have composed your own tune, you can upload it here to let other pipers learn it and perhaps get some feedback. PLEASE ONLY UPLOAD TUNES YOU HAVE COMPOSED YOURSELF OR HAVE EXPRESS PERMISION FROM THE COMPOSER TO DO SO.
Please only create a new topic in this forum if you are uploading a tune.

I wrote this after nearly a year of keeping it in my head. It just had to come out. I claim it to be a lamentation, nothing more. I find it calming and rewarding to have composed, but make no claims beyond that, except to say it is from my heart.

I have been encouraged to complete this piece with the crunluath variation, which I have taken a wee while to do but the result is included now. I have had feedback to say it seems to complete the piece now.

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!
