    I like the irish pipe, the Uillean pipes. A mellower sound, more nuanced. Bagpipe get old fast

    Accordion is a grossly underrated instrument. So much better than an digital keyboard for a ton of stuff. Check out Ludovic Beier, the king of gypsy jazz accordion:

    Maybe we were a bit premature in our prognosis.

    I tried learning the bagpipes during my down time in Afghanistan. It kept the mice away fairly well.

    I quite like these - especially the Northumbrian pipes - as played by Kathryn Tickell. The Scottish pipes are great when played well and as part of a massed band of pipes and drums - but my ears find them a bit shrill as a solo instrument.

    Not technically bagpipes being played on the studio version of Long Way ( there was a very long version of this story in Classic Rock magazine a couple of years ago)as I understand it. Scott said he could play them ( they knew he'd been in a pipe band but he was a drummer) but he couldn't. He could get enough noise out so that the melody you hear was largely created by a clever tape op.
    Apparently never performed live by the Johnson fronted line up as it was seen as Scott's signature number.

    Anyway, bagpipes - if he hasn't been mentioned then I'll mention Rufus Harley. Find something with him on YouTube, particularly with Sonny Rollins, and be prepared to go wow.

    Here's one of my favorite Celtic-Metal-Techno hybrids featuring the highland pipes, along with a dang weird video...

    I thought that I'd read that they weren't actually bagpipes on the recording, but after looking at the wiki page for the song, turns out they were bagpipes on the record.

    However, after one live performance of the song Bon put the bagpipes down at the edge of the stage and the crowd snagged them and ripped them to shreds. Afterwards, they used a tape of the pipes section for live performances.

    Love this song and the video!

    I remember in high school, my friend practicing the bagpipes. I could hear him clear as a bell several blocks away.

    As a Scot I'm offended by all this cultural appropriation. THIS is how bagpiping is done in Scotland:

    I have seen better footage but this gives some idea of Rufus as a visual treat as well as wing someone prepared to tackle Coltrane on bagpipes.

    I’ve always had a thing for the Pan Flute, as oppose to the Bag Pipes.
    Banjos no, accordion no.

    Ha...! I don't criticise 'em, I just don't see any point in 'em. I won't be watching THAT wedding at the weekend, either :rolleyes:.
