There are some excellent books available via my website such as Pat Sky's "Ryan's Mammoth Collection" and various other books of piping interest at http://www.concentric.net/~pdarcy/page1/store.shtml

i will second the suggestion for john walsh's book. never have i gotten so much fun from a single music book. if you hear a tune belonging to the body of irish traditional music, any tune, say on a cd, the tune will likely be in the book. sometimes with more than 1 setting, always with multiple titles. worth every penny

The best learning is not to be found in books, tutors, or videos, it is to be found at tionols, summer schools, classes of other sorts, and by listening. The videos, however, have been quite helpful and in fact, have made it possible for many to learn to play. The shortcoming of the video is, however, the lack of instantaneous feedback, opportunity to correct, and then obtain additional instantaneous feedback and corrective as well as interpretive demonstration.

They are not always pipe friendly(different key signatures), but the O'Niell
collection has alot of setingss for old tunes-1800 of them?. Does anyone else use it? I will admit, I don't always like a setting and I have a sneaking suspicion there may be some typos on some tunes. Still, it is a pretty good base reference.
I've been meaning to ask this question for a while as well:
If Irish musical style is so free, why do you get told at a tionol "NO that's not the right setting or arrangement." Who do you trust; yourself or the nay-sayers :poke: ?

Excellent point, marcpipes. As a solo GHB I play lots of things as I like, a combination of standard settings and some adjustments for the situation. "Free", as you call it. The average band Pipe Major would have my ears dangling from the top of his Bass Drone for modifying standard settings. But.......it is music, and by it's very nature, must be adaptable. Play on.

It all depends on how "jazzy" you're making the tune. Your version should be rooted in the melody and internal rhythm of that particular tune, the variations should be based around that. There is a big difference between varying the tune traditionally and making up some wacko version yourself that has no relation to the original tune.

You'll find some very good tunes in settings suitable for the pipes in the Ceol rince nEireann volumes available from NPU. I'd suggest Ceol rince, volume one to start with as the settings are bare bone with indications for ornamentation of your own choosing. Most important of all is of course to listen to solo recordings of uilleann piping, and even other instruments such as flute and fiddle, as much as possible. The London Pipers Club has, or had a very nice collection of tunes taught by their uilleann pipe tutors.
