A Pipers’ Guide to Music
One consequence of the changes that have taken place in Scottish piping in recent years is that pipers who formerly played only from music written for the Great Highland Bagpipe now find themselves being presented with music for other instruments, music which makes demands on the players which they have not met with before.
The purpose of this brief tutor is to offer pipers who have little or noexperience of the more arcane mysteries of written music some techniques for mastering these new challenges. At the same time, it offers techniques that can be adapted by players of pipes in other keys to enable them to read GHB music.
This tutor will also lay the groundwork for a future section which will tackle the question of writing harmonies for bagpipes.
