    Highland Rock !!

    One of my guitar students has recently formed a new band and considering his influences (rock/metal, prog-rock etc.), I nearly fell over when he told me the leader of the band is a Scottish BAGPIPE (!!) player. Iíve loved what Korn & AC/DC have touched on with their mixture of hard riffs and Ďpipes but, in my rock/jazz/classical bubble, itís the first time Iíve personally heard it done in such a traditional (Scottish) way. I heard the debut of a new song at their gig on Sunday and the overdriven guitar and Ďpipes playing melodies in unison sounded pretty amazing on the ear.

    After seeing them live, this rough sample is not really representative of how good they sound as a band (itís just rhythm guitar, Ďpipes & a drum machine) but itís a good enough indication of what theyíre up to. Check it out.

    Enjoy!

    (Any feedback would be appreciated)

    Cheers Ö Paul.

    I love that... It's a little slow, but I'm a huge Bagpipe fan, I play a little myself. I could jam to this.

    Cool stuff - I could definitely listen to that for a while. Reminds me of Dexy's Midnight Runners from back in the '80s, except not so pop sounding. I like it!
