bagpipe appreciation thread

yes. you read the thread title right.

well? when they're played right, i'm going to go ahead and say that it's just as good as a great guitar line.

bear in mind that i would only have the guts to post a thread like this at 5 am...i really need to sleep

I can think of no song I have currently with bagpipes in them, although I have unsuccessfully tried to download Scottish folk music in the past. I think I was trying to get into Dougie MacLean and failed terribly (no one's sharing?) but I don't think he used bagpipes anyway.

I love bagpipes too!

How about we talk about great songs with bagpipes in them??

I've always thought it would be very wicked to have a bagpipe worked into Streets.. one of the techno covers sounds almost like a bagpipe.

streets coiuld be really cool like that!!! it would kill me, guitar part and pipes...yeah that could be really amazing

i really like what dropkick murphys do with bagpipes.

i saw this band gaelic storm and they a bagpipe player, he was really good. and it was loud, the whole show was really good, but the reels where the bagpiper played were the best

One of Bagpipe's greatest moments:

From a really crappy movie (So I married an Axe Murderer)...

Where Mike Myers does a rendition of Do ya think I'm Sexy (Rod Stewart)...

If it's not Scottish it's crap... actually that's not true.
