As you maybe knows, I'm a belgian police officer...
And I'm learning to play the bagpipes, after I have seen a Bagpipeband playing in FL, when I was there for a holiday.
Now I'm wondering, are here any LEO's that also play the bagpipe??
And, Is there any musicscore for bagpipes of The Star Spangled Banner??
Because I can play your National Anthem on the guitar, but I have to play this on my bagpipe...
thanks in advance

I recently (about 4 months ago) started playing. Get a McCallum long chanter and practice the fingering. That's the hardest part. Once you get the notes down, then I would invest in a proper set of pipes.
Have fun and good luck. I'm still learning myself, so maybe we can share some information.

I (one of the few) LOVE the pipes,I only can hope that when that fateful day comes,(and it will) ,that my survivors can find someone(or a resonable facsimile) to play "Amazing Grace".It is the only thing I would rquest of my (hopefully) greiving bunch.
Can anyone think of anything more Poignant??

I'm learning, but it's sounds more like a dying cat."Somewhere a True Believer is training to kill you.
He is training with minimum food or water, in austere conditions, day and night.
The only thing clean on him is his weapon.
He doesn't worry about what workout to do---his rucksack weighs what it weighs, and he runs until the enemy stops chasing him.
The True Believer doesn't care "how hard it is"; he knows he either wins or he dies.
He doesn't go home at 1700; he is home.
He knows only the Cause.
Now, who wants to quit?"

I've started about a year ago, so I'm playing my Mc Callum Bagpipe now for over a monthe or two... (first few months practice chanter).
One of the criteria to buy my own bagpipe was that I could play Amazing Grace out of my head on the chanter...
Now I can say, I play Amazing Grace perfect on my bagpipe, but, only with two drones, if I open the third drone, I'm dying.... looooool
Also I'm gonna wear a military style uniform, with lot of remembrence to my former corps "gemeentepolitie" that was reformed after some bad times here in Belgium.
Also a nice tune on the bagpipe is 'Highland Cathedral', verry chilling.
If there are more cops playing the bagpipe, let us hear!!!
Lesta, if you got any questions... shoot ;-)
but still I haven't found your National Anthem for bagpipes...
