    I guess "Amazing Grace" is the "Smoke On The Water" for bagpipes.

    It is indeed. I played it for Memorial Day but otherwise I'm not repeating tunes.

    Talking of limited repertoire, enjoy James Acaster talking about Mexico (the subject he had been given was Britain)

    I play a golf course gig every year where I lead every foursome across a suspension bridge after they tee off. 60 groups across the bridge starting at 7:00, finishing at around 5:00. I don't repeat tunes although I could just play Scotland the Brave over and over and no one would care. In fact, last year I sat down in the mid afternoon between jaunts across the bridge and a fellow who'd been sitting there most of days said, "You've been doing that all day, haven't you?" "Yep, a few more hours to go." I responded. "You ever going to play a different song?" he says.

    It's a tough gig being a piper at times.
