As I've told many of the Newgrounders on here, I play bagpipes. But I never proved it because my bagpipes were kinda screwed up. Well here's my proff that I play bagpipes. This tune is one of the ones you learn when you're still playing practice chanter, Green Hills of Tyrol, but I really love this one out of the many I know.
There is something I forgot to mention, after I moved to the small town I lived in, I stopped playing the pipes as often as I should and it took it's tool, so when you're listening to this, you'll noticed that it sounds like it's getting quieter then louder again. That's because My lungs are still in need of re-adjustment to the bagpipes massive need for strong lungs, so I need to build up my lungs again. It shouldn't take too long, and I need to get my lungs strong again soon for Klazmo's sake (I'm making a bagpipe song for his game) and my school's sake (I'm playing bagpipes for the remembrance day ceremony)
I should also add that this is only the first part, my lungs gave out when I started the second part, so I REALLY need to get my lungs strong again.
So don't mind the weirdness of my lungs affecting the bagpipes, just enjoy the tune.

pretty cool

I can tell you can play, but it seems the bagpipes are a bit...well...off tune completely.

Oh well, good job.

I mainly noticed the offtune in the drones, and I tried my best to get them in tune, but the best I would get was around 15 cents from it being the right tuning. And the bagpipe reed could be off tune, but I found that where the reed is is one of the only places I could have it without one note or another sounding scratchy.
Thanks for the review!
