A comprehensive guide to the tunes every piper should know by Dugald MacNeill.

The 50+ tunes in this collection represent a great basic repetoire. Among the titles are the most familar tunes played by pipe bands, as well as selections suited to weddings, funerals, and Highland and country dancing. All of the tunes are demonstrated on the practice chanter on the accompanying CD, so you can hear them as you learn them.
