My latest crazy idea is to group these in ascending pitch, starting with low G and finishing with Eb. Some of these are quite old and my piping makes me cringe. However, this first one is from Ronan Browne, and is his low G with pitch shifted drones.  I’m upset to find that I’ve lost the recording of the one I made, it sounded great but you’ll have to take my word for that. Anyway here’s Ronan’s G.

 

2017 A chanter, with tenor D drone and concert bass reg, then tuner drone.

 

Next is the first A chanter I made, first with D drones then by itself

 

Now Bb, I think this is palosanto.

 

And I can’t resist Ronan playing a Bb, now if you don’t have Cran’s “Lover’s Ghost” go and buy it, you’ll thank me.

 

Now a boxwood B – in context one of my all time favourite pieces of piping. Also from “Lover’s Ghost”

 

My own weak gloss, as F O’Brien would say
