Hal Leonard Bagpipe Method Book with Video Access
This fast-track approach to piping starts at the very beginning and guides you through 10 tunes, including Blue Bells of Scotland, Auld Lang Syne, Amazing Grace, and Scotland the Brave. The method focuses on melody and tempo, with simplified embellishments. The theory is that mastering these will lay a solid groundwork from which the piper can add the more complex embellishments. Professional instructor Ron Bowen demonstrates the exercises and tunes through online video. By Ron Bowen and Sarajane Trier. 48 pages.
