Thread Name: bagpipe music question
Subject: RE: bagpipe music question
Jack Campin's question as to 'what instrument' you are playing is very important. Also there are many songs written to pipe tunes which requires one to sing the G sharp or natuaral depending upon the key signature. An example where one has to sing the G sharp is Pibroch o' Donald Dhu or March of the Cameron men. Highland Laddie, on the other hand, has the G natural. I say 'has to' but of course depending on your ear and singing skills you may want to imitate the pipe tune and reproduce the G natural (transposed or not).
