King of the Pipers [traditional]

Description
"King of the Pipers" is a traditional Scottish [I think!] jig.

All made from a single midi track which I've chopped up. The whisltle and flute tracks are Apple instruments and the dulcimer sounding track was made with the Albino 3 soft synth. There are two "drone" tracks which are my own, again made with the Albino. I've also added a bass track.

So, although I've not played the melodies, [I wish I could!] it is my own arrangement, so to speak. A LOT of pencilling was done to this. It's taken me ages.

I can't credit the composer, because I don't know who it is. Nor can I credit the person who sequenced the original midi file, again, I can't find who did it. You can find the same file on many sites. But I can use it, as long as I don't make any money. Ha!

Anyway - it's a lovely tune, so why not have a listen?

Very
Flingy Dave, Reminded me of Maypole dancing, or dancing over crossed swords (Never done that though). I had to listen a bit at a time because of the buffering probs I told you about, but enjoyed it just the same, cheers M

Glad you liked!
I spent a long time on trying to get the mix right - but it's all trial and error for me really!

The Albino 3 soft synth is a fantastic bit of kit, well worth having a look at. A link here should you be interested.

Cheers!

Finding this
Made my day. I LOVE Celtic music. I don't have this on my Altan Album, Another Sky. Darn, I was going to play it and contrast the two versions. Maybe, I should look for another album. My cd is autographed by all the members. I was lucky enough to be able to see them in person. Thanks, Dave. :)
