Hi Folks

A nice quick question for you. I'm looking to provide the information to help a friend of a friend tweak the search facility on the website folktunefinder.com. The Planned tweak will make it possible to search the data base for tunes that fit the scale as played on a smallpipe in A and D and a borderpipe in A. This will hopefully provide an even more user friendly (free) resource for bellows pipe players to dig out new tunes. What I can't remember is what the pitch of the respective mixolydian scale is and I don't want to mess the whole process up!

Am I right in thinking that the A border pipe pitches at A = 440Hz as equivilent with the first A above middle C on a piano?

That the root A of a smallpipe in A is that immediately below middle C?

That the root D of a smallpipe in D is that immediately below middle C?

Just to make sure were are all on the same page this is the system being used for reference.

Many thanks in anticipation :cheer:

Well I didn't expect this to take so long!

Go on anyone, can you confirm my thoughts or put me on the right track?

I think you meant 'That the root D of a smallpipe in D is that immediately ABOVE middle C?'
The main thing is to keep the main thing the main thing, they say

Hi Pete

This goes to the nub of my question really. I wondered if the D smallpipe went from the D bellow middle C to finish on the octave at D, the tone directly above middle C?
