Playing Star Wars has been a consistent crowd pleaser in my piping journey. You'll excite people of all ages when you get Star Wars Bagpipe Ready!
Have a blast learning the proper technique for grace notes, doublings, triplets, D Throws, E strikes, B strikes.
Ready to fast forward your bagpiping journey?
It was the rebel in me that led me to start teaching myself Star Wars on the bagpipes. 😐
I was 12, going on 13, and I'd already been playing the pipes for a few years. Just getting into my teenage years, I was already becoming a bit of a rebel.
The old parade marches that I was learning had lost their appeal. They were being replaced by modern jigs and hornpipes.
I was looking for something different in my piping...
Something that would help me stand out as a bagpiper in my own right, from all the other pipers out there (including my dad and two brothers).
Then I found the answer to my bagpiping dilemma! I'd heard a rumor from somebody that you could play Star Wars on the bagpipes.
Immediately, I became obsessed with teaching myself Star Wars, keeping it hidden from my bagpipe instructor of course! Haha!
I watched and rewatched the intro of our Star Wars VHS tape.
It was early days for the internet, I could play an entire tune on my chanter while I waited for one webpage to load! It was a process, but using the dial-up internet I managed to find some sheet music online!
After that Star Wars became my number one tune to play for friends, families, ceilidhs, and talent shows. 😁
I want you to be successful in adding Star Wars to your piping repertoire!
In this module, we'll go over the rest of the tune with the embellishments. But don't worry! It'll all be note-by-note instruction. I'll also include the sheet music!
