Basically im really interested in making a band which has a piper, violin,maybe 2, a drummer/percussion/a guitarist and a bass player aswell. Other more interesting instruments could be good aswell.

I play violin just now and i know of a piper in the area that maybe interested in it.

Wheres the best place to practise?? Anyone know??

Please remember that the piper will NEED a Bb chanter and even then it may not be 100% in tune with regular notes.

This is becuase bagpipes do not play the standard chromatic notes.

disclaimer: I am not an expert on the bagpipes.

It's always good to have a couple of songs everyone knows at a first rehearsal. That way people can get warmed up, get used to each other and sort out the sound before attempting any jamming.

To all of you interested, if you like, we can have a little flat jam at my place? See what ideas everyone has, and basically just get the banter for an hour or two, to get us all aquainted as well? PM me if any of you are into that idea. :up:
