In my part of the world, “The Green Hills of Tyrol” is a staple of massed band performances. You can count on hearing it at some point at the beginning and end of each games day. It’s also used frequently for pipe band tuning—the second part is quite effective, since you are basically playing down the scale from High A. But this little workhorse of a tune is one of the oldest pipe band tunes in our repertoire today, and has quite an amazing story.

There was a soldier, A Scottish soldier...... Okay we don't actually sing the song in tonight's class but we do look at this impressive tune. Why do so many people use this tune while tuning? Why do we start low g technique on the beat? This and the first part of the tune all rolled into one awesome class!
