    I'd totally break out the pipes on Its A Long Way To The Top. If I had any. It could happen.

    Just so you're aware, one does not just casually dabble in the bagpipes.
    It is a lifelong quest to master playing this very difficult instrument, and even when that happens, you still sound like a bleating injured bird.
    That's why the vikings laughed when gifting their invention of the bagpipes to the scots, and (according to my pipes instructor), the scots still haven't realized that it was a joke :p

    Oh I know. I've been in more than one group with pipes, both kinds. They are great when they can be played to pitch, which is rare. Mysteriously difficult, unstable, instruments. I was actually visualizing some electronic pipes, dressed up to look like Highland pipes - hey, anything goes in a cover band, right?

    From the neighborhood. Jammed with her very very briefly when she was just starting out. University of Lund, Sweden had this "Carnival" in 1994, where she performed a stunt trick in the "Circus Tent". Briefly acquaintance and then she went on her own.

    Now, for bagpipes I really prefer my very own take to it. Sorry, but I can do this on a Telecaster too. But this is on a Strat. 94 K views since 2011:



    Yes, bagpipes can be fun. On guitar. Why destroy your lungs on real bagpipes and spend eons trying to master them? ;)

    Thanks! I think I got the link fixed now and johnnyk kindly re-posted for me as well. I took your advice to run Windows Network Diagnostics and received the following notice: Operator Error. Turn off your computer and go smoke another bowl. So this is what I'm going to do straight away. Again, thank you and Happy Holidays to you and yours!
