I had this idea to play tunes that haven’t been published yet. So, that requires a bit of sight reading so I figure it’d be good to work on those tunes just a wee bit before getting them up on the pipes. In lieu of unpublished tunes, I’m currently sight reading tunes I used to play ages ago when I was teenager and had nothing better to do, to at least have some idea of what notes are going to come next. Needless to say, it’s been a while! It is also near impossible to sight read Piobaireachd and arrive at something remotely close to sounding like music.
I’ve got the Robertson spec carbon fiber Rockets going again here. Pipes are for sale. Imitation ivory ringcaps and bushes, nickel ferrules, button mounted, ebony Robertsons from 1947. No blowpipe or chanter, but the rest of the set is complete. Sticks only. David Murry is the owner of the pipes. You can contact him for more info at: (contact info deleted after sale). I’ll note if you need a bag I have a lead on small and large sized Gannaways that I think both have grommets and zipper. In order to tempt you I have played some nice little tunes and then with an appeal to you Piobaireachd players, I did my best! Of course, these Rockets can go with the sale too.
