    Mellow Piping Music??

    Okay...tried to post this twice and hit the update time - its early now since AZ doesn't go on daylight...gotta watch the clock...then screwed it up the second attempt....so, the olde geezer is trying a third time to post this inquiry.

    I know there are lots of CDs of bagpipes playing marches and tattoos and rousing military tunes. And I know there are lots of Celtic groups that play rowdy tunes with bagpipes.

    If anyone knows of any bagpipe CDs that only play mellow, soft, soothing, relaxing, put your baby to sleep type tunes I'd sure be interested.

    Thanks for any suggestions.

    I see two of these threads on the index right now, Ron. It was confusing. There are some new age-ish bag pipe CDs with frogs churping by the crick with pipes going... My mother sends me that kind of stuff from time to time. You might check down south in the red rock vortex. But hey, why not get some Navajo flute guys together with a piper, maybe throw in some drummers, and then record it... That might be cool... and mellow.
    Here's the quote from the other thread with a wormhole link to the post. Don't get caught in the time/space causel loop though...

    it isn't just pipes though. If you find something let me know, I have often wondered myself.

    Thanks JB,

    And Ted, crack me up...not such a bad idea. There's a scene in the movie Dance Me Outside (Adam Beach) where the Indians are having a phoney ceremony for a White guy and as things escalate suddenly the sound track comes on with bagpipes! Go figure.

    When I was in college, MCC, I used to take a practice chanter with a plastic reed and go jam with the jazz dudes who always hung out in the practice rooms at the music department. You can really play between the cracks on those cheap chanters, but it worked.

    Had me a cheap chanter my then lady bought me for Christmas out of a catalog...still can't make it work. Figured it was just a cheap chanters so took it down to Thompson's, the bagpipe store in Flagstaff. Decided to buy a "real" chanter. He insisted on trying my **** chanter and could play it like a dream...it weren't the chanter...it were me.

    Anyhow, thanks for the Amazon reminder JB. Wound up buying the Sporit of the Glen by the Royal Scots Dragoon Guard, Isle of Skye slow aors pm the bagpipes, a 4 disc set, and Micheal Hamiltons Bagpipe Funeral Music and Bagpipe Wedding Music.

    We'll see how they workout.

    Thanks for the help,

    You could also try Shotts & Dykehead's "By the Waters Edge". There are some nice tunes on that CD.
