I did once, many years ago. It was the strangest thing.... It was Dvořák's Symphony No 9 second movement (Going Home) played on bagpipes. it was beautiful and totally cosmic since Dvořák's Symphony No 9 is one of my favorite pieces of music.

Read something in this morning’s paper, Denver (Com)post. Apparently there is a nationwide effort that fire and police bagpipers are “playing the sun down” at sunset each day. It is a symbol of we have survived another day as we fight the good fight.

I would provide the link, but I am a technological Neanderthal, or so I have been told. I struggle with the link things.

I used to have some and was learning to play when they were mysteriously permanently damaged. I have been walking the dogs in the evening and thinking how cool it'd be to play with it so quiet and empty outside.

No, but I'm interested in learning how to play the bagpipes.

They are pretty expensive though, so I might just get the chanter to learn on, and wait to get the actual bagpipes until later.
^^^^^^^
I believe this is still heavily recommended, especially as IIRC playing the chanter IS the first step.

Out of abject boredom, I pulled these off the shelf and put in a new reed and may give it another go. Even though it’s a cheap set, I was starting to get less awful years ago but was asked to park them by my wife (who’s a Scot,) the dogs and the neighbors. I piped at a funeral a decade ago and the poor deceased kicked open the lid and gave me the finger. HH
