bagpipes have been around, in one form or another, for about three
thousand years. The range of a bagpipe is one octave, although some
types allow for an additional octave range. Four British forms of
this instrument are Scottish Highland Bagpipes, Scottish Lowland
Bagpipes, Northumbrian Bagpipes and Irish Bagpipes.
bagpipes from different countries include: musette (French), gaita
(Spanish), Dudelsack (German), zampogna (Italian), dudy (Poland)
and masak (Indian).
interesting fact with respect to this instrument is that music only
began to be notated for bagpipes in the nineteenth century. From
standpoint, bagpipe music is highly interesting, especially when
analyzing the various grace note patterns employed by performers.
