Subject: re: puff the magic dragon for bagpipes
I don't know a thing about writing for the bagpipes. Do you read notes or tablature? What's the range? What are the drones tuned to? OK I've started reading up (thanks, Wikipedia!), and it appears there are several variants of bagpipes, each with their own limitations and requirements. It seems Northumbrian smallpipe might be preferred, since it can play in staccato fashion. I don't know how you'd get the separation between "Puff" and "the" that are on the same note with a legato-only chanter.

Hi. I have been asked to play Puff the Magic Dragon on the bagpipes. Is there someone out there who is sufficiently on to it to transpose that score to something I can play on the pipes?? Thank you. Ian

How to insert music:

Add a bit of sheet music, along with a MIDI file, simply by entering note names in Lilypond syntax between the [L] and [/L] tags.
For example, you can try what happens if you enter: [l]g'4 g'4 d''4 d''4 e''4 e''4 d''2[/l] (use the Preview function if you don't actually want to post this).
You can create these lists of note names by clicking on piano keys here.

How to post an audio recording:

If you just want to sing, whistle, or play a melody so that other forum visitors can hear it, follow these steps:

  1. Record your audio here.
  2. You should notice a 32-character hash code, something like: 2a40281c5001c5a7d8c9f57fcdeccfaf
  3. copy this hash code and paste it into a forum post, enclosed in the audio tags, for example: [audio]2a40281c5001c5a7d8c9f57fcdeccfaf[/audio]

How to mark a thread as solved:

If the original question in a thread is solved, please mark it as solved using the "solved" icon (or by just typing [solved] into your post). This makes life easier for people who are willing to identify melodies, since unsolved problems are easier to spot that way. If a problem turns out to not be solved after all, just write [/solved] in a new post, and the thread will be labeled accordingly.
