Thread Name: bagpipe music question
Subject: RE: bagpipe music question
As others have already said or implied, I have been told that highland bagpipes are nominally tuned to A mixolydian, but that they actually sound very much like B flat mixolydian. The one time that I accompanied a bagpipe player I had success by putting a capo at the third fret and accompanying in G mixolydian (a lot of progressions with G going down to F and then back.)
