This is a wonderful collection of essential pipe tunes, and is a must for a piper to have. It is well arranged, and the music is easy on the eyes. You can buy this at any bagpipe supplier, but you will pay $65-$80 for it. My price was slightly over $40, and it arrived at my home in 2 days, even without paying for expedited shipping. Thanks, Amazon!

I bought this for my son. I bought my own copy, which is battered and worn, in 1972. I was amazed at the price - it is much cheaper through Amazon than through the bagpipe supply houses.

These are the most commonly played settings for the classic bagpipe marches, strathspeys and reels. It includes many of the most popular competition matches. Some of the tunes are exceedingly difficult but there is something for all levels of ability. There are only a couple hornpipes which have become more popular since this book was published. There are some surprising omissions of popular standard tunes which has been rectified by publishing Volume 2.

This book is really a veritable library of bagpipe music that was written by some of the most knowledgeable and talented musicians and writers of bagpipe music in the history of the instrument. In this volume there are 521 (+/-) tunes that range from the Slow Air to Ceol Mor; also included are 2 Funeral Marches. There is also a brief history of the Royal Scots Dragoon Guard (RSDG) from inception in 1639, through all wars until circa 1962. For the history buff, there is included several photographs of the old Pipe Majors with their tenure at the Regiments, Regimental personnel themselves and Orders of Dress (uniforms). This is a very worthwhile book to own for any aspiring and serious Piper. Did I mention this book cost less here than anywhere I looked on the Internet and in my town? Yes it was, by about $40. Enjoy.

Although originally published many years ago, this is still an essential reference book for any piper.

Scots Guards collection is more or less the definitive collection of pipe music.

I am a student piper and there is no way I am ready to play tunes from this book but it is just plain beautiful and I love it. As I progress I look forward to playing some of the huge selection of bagpipe arrangements. It sits beside my chair and I love flipping through it. You should have some things just because.
