Thread Name: bagpipe music question
Subject: bagpipe music question
A friend has given me a book of music for Highland Dancing. The cover shows bagpipers and a damsel in a kilt, so presumably the tunes in it are for bagpipes.

All the tunes seem to be in the key of C. The don't sound right. Is there a convention that pipe tunes are written in one key and played in another?

The preface doesn't say anything about it.
