Believe it or not, there are literally thousands of bagpipe tunes. To make it easier for you, I’ve narrowed the selections down to the few options on this page. If there is a special tune that you would like, it is usually no problem for me to learn the tune, provided that I can research the music, OR if there is a tape or CD that you may have available of the tune.
The tunes listed below link to midi files. In the interest of downloading time, they are the best source and representation of what the tune will sound like. Clicking on the name of the tune should launch a media player on your system. If a media player does not launch on your system, you may need to download QuickTime.
