You'll find for each tune several informations like the score of course but also the lyrics and the origins of the air.
The tunes are classified in several groups : click on each air to get the whole description.
The scores come from various origins : traditional score already available on the internet, score transcriptions from tunes I've heard played by some pipers (like Fred Morrison e.g.), collections on sale like the essential «Scots Guards - Standard Settings Of Pipe Music (Paterson’s Publications)».
About the scores :
The tunes played with the Highland Bagpipe are mostly written in the keys of A (with a natural G) and D, according to the scottish writing.
Besides, as we play the A or D note from the score on the bagpipe, we hear a B flat or a E flat, so that the reel pitch is an halftone above.
Some of these scores have a second title, that is the name of the air related to the song.
You'll also find some scores in two groups instead of one : that is due to different possibilities of playing the tune. For example, some of them can be played as a march or as a dance, others as a slow air or a march.
All bagpipe scores are provided free in good faith. If anyone believes there are copyright issues associated with any of the music, please email me with details and I will investigate.
