Thread Name: bagpipe music question
Subject: RE: bagpipe music question
Pipe music never shows key signatures but they are written in A major, i.e., C,F and G are sharp when played, say on a piano. The chanter plays the high G neither natural nor sharp hence the 'peculiar' sound noticed when trying to play a non pipe tune on th e pipes.
