The video to the right is kind of fun. During the winter we would play at halftime for the SJNMA basketball games. It was always a bit of a panic to set up the pipes, get them over to the gym and then wait. and wait. I'd quickly organize the boys just before halftime. I never knew what to expect. Anyway, it was high-energy and lots of fun...and a great experience for the boys.
If you don't own Jim's book, you should. I've known Jim since 1972, which doesn't make either of us very young. Jim pursued an outstanding solo piping career as well as competed in Grade 1 with The City of Guelph Pipe Band. I played with rival Waterloo Regional Police Pipe Band. Jim's Rythmic Fingerwork and Piobaireachd Fingerwork are considered essential by many pipers and instructors. I'm very pleased to recommend both.
