How to Use Your Pipes to Sing Bagpipe Funeral Songs
In my previous post, I mentioned how I have written a bagpipe music collection called Bagpipes of Death.
I’ve also written a new collection called A Bagpipe Musical Journey.
The first installment of the new collection was a collection of traditional and modern bagpipe songs.
It’s a collection that was written from the perspective of a musician, and was meant to give a broader musical perspective.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed writing it.
Here are some of the songs I’ve recorded for this collection.
I have also included some of my own compositions for the collection.
These are my own arrangements and arrangements that I’ve worked on with friends, in my spare time, and at home.
I try to include a little of everything in these songs, to give the song a more “traditional” sound, but there are still many other variations I can play around with.
In the spirit of the collection, I’ve put together a list of my favorite bagpipe arrangements.
There are many more that I’d love to hear from you.
If you have any questions about the collection or have suggestions for future projects, I’d be more than happy to hear them.
As a last note, I want to say thank you to the many people who wrote in with suggestions, ideas, and encouragement.
If I’ve missed your favorite arrangements, please let me know.
 I’ve included some arrangements from my personal collection.
The rest of the music is composed by others.
These arrangements are arranged in a similar fashion as the originals, and can be easily played through your computer.
 This is a great example of the “filling in the blanks” approach.
This is one of the best-known bagpipe tunes of all time.
I use it to create a really nice sound for a lot of the recordings in the collection and this is a very useful technique for me.
 This version of the melody is from the collection Bagpipers of Death: Bagpipe Music of the Old and New Ways.
 This arrangement of “A Bagpipe Song” is from my collection The Bagpipe Songs.
 This “Gigantic” version of “Catch-22” is written by David Dreyer, who I’ve always admired for his bagpipe work.
This version is from a collection called The Bagpiper’s Songs.
 This was written by Jim Martin, who was also a great friend of mine, and I highly recommend him for all your Bagpipe musical endeavors.
This is the arrangement of a song I recorded for the “Midsummer’s Day Song” collection, Bagpipe by Jimmie Davis.
If you’re looking for other arrangements that use bagpiping, or would like to share some of your own, please do let me hear from people about their bagpipe creations.
I hope you enjoyed this post.
