Great for beginners Andy I studied engineering in my undergrad so I think with that part of my brain. I've never played a musical instrument, couldn't carry a note in a bucket. After a couple of days studying Mr Clarke's great tutorial, I was both reading music and happily murdering notes on my cheap set of Pakistani pipes. The CD included was of great help tuning my pipes as was the freeware tuning program I downloaded off the net, AP tuner (). If a musically clueless git like me can learn, anyone can. Definately worth the price.. a beginning uilleann piper--best starter available Well, simply put, this is the best starter book availablethe book by Seamus Ennis, The Master's Touch, is good as well, and has many songs to boot. Both are good intros, but the inclusion of the audio CD with this book by Heather Clarke is a welcome addition. If you are learning from an instructor or on your own, this book will do well for you--but bear in mind these pipes are complex instruments that most people who play love and hate at the same time--they aren't easy, but THEY ARE NOT IMPOSSIBLE!!!!!. "Excellent resource" according to T. McCarthy. An extremely well written and easy to understand book. Especially helpful for someone who has experience playing the Great Highland Bagpipe. Lessons are well spaced and I find I can proceed in a deliberate manner, improving with each lesson.
