Lol. Yes, Cassius, I think I can say that my life has gone to the birds, with 5 of them to take care of.
Odd reasons why I chose bagpipes:
- I love music that has a drone or eson, like the Byzantine Chant that I performed for several years.
-I had recently been to Scotland
-I wanted to choose something “different” or unusual
-I would get all emotional when the massed bands would play at Highland games
-lessons were free and nearby
So, relevant to this conversation? Not really!
It really has been a shock to me to find out the insane amount of time one has to practice to learn an instrument. Half an hour a day really doesn’t cut it.
