Mine's the pipes (bag and Ullian) and drums (like in Braveheart's Battle of Sterling)...no other instruments make that kind of physical feeling in me.


--------------------
Many times man lives and dies
Between his two eternities,
That of race and that of soul
And ancient Ireland knew it all.

" To a Scot, the past clings like sand to wet feet,
and is carried about as a burden.
The many ghosts are always a part of them, inescapable."
Geddes MacGregor

Hope, fear, false-joy, and trouble,
Are these four winds which daily toss this bubble,
His breath’s a vapour, and his life’s a span;
Tis glorious misery to be born a man.
~ from a Cornish gravestone

"Now I perceive the devil understands Welsh.”
"God defend me from that Welsh fairy,
Lest he transform me to a piece of cheese!”
William Shakespeare quotes

"Onen hag Oll", One and All (Cornwall's motto)

Mine would have to be the bodhrán. Whether rumbling softly like coming thunder or providing the rhythm for a rousing pub sing-a-long, I've always seen the bodhrán as the heart of the music.

The haunting Ullian pipes certainly tend to take my heart to far off misty lands.........

I can't really name a single instrument, for me it's the harmonization of highland pipes along with fiddle. There's a definitely a synergy there, where the combination of the two is more than the sum of them individually.

I have two modes: wiseass and dumbass. Mode is determined by current blood alcohol level.

Drinking is a sport. In order to be competitive, you must practice on a regular basis. Although you can practice alone, it is much more fun to practice with friends. If you're out of shape and practice too hard, you will regret it the next day.

Life is a disease. It is sexually transmitted and always terminal.

There isn't an instrument on the planet that comes close to the sweet sound of the uillean pipes.

Fiddle and the pipes are both great
The Pennywhistle is enchanting, and the Digirdoo mysterious
Hammer Dulcimer is always fun to listen to

But there's one instrument that strikes my heart like no other: Harp!
