Has a flow similar to LaBaum.....would probably sound GREAT with a BAGAD band playing backround.

The tune

Post by agartler » Sun Nov 19, 2006 6:37 pm

Hi there

I would like to congratulate you for writing a super tune. It doesn't only have class but has that special something that every tune needs. Though, somehow this tune is really familiar? What inspired you to write this tune?
I would still request you to take a look at the second line. It needs a bit of revising. A few notes must be tied or they should have a grace note because as you know the bagpipes can stop and start as they please.

best regards

Alexander Gartler :D

it would sound great with harmonies, very nice. it does sound familiar, but it was mainly the 5th measure i think. good work!
