Battle of the Bag Pipe Bands

The bag pipe - a strange instrument - has strange parts. It boasts a chanter (the pipe), drones (the tube things), a big, squeezable bag, and fussy tuning process that will make untrained pipers sound like they are drowning a cat. Before putting on the skirt and knee-high socks, be sure to check out Bagpipe Solutions, an instructional DVD/VHS by world-class piper John Cairns. Cairns sage advice will prepare you for fierce bag pipe competition and help you learn how to be the pipes, not just play them.
