    Bagpipes Made From a Whole Goat!

    Risto Todoroski is playing a Macedonian gaida (bagpipe) made from a whole billy goat skin, hardwood sleeved in water-buffalo horn.

    A slow song followed by a folkdance tune from Macedonia and Thrace.

    Sorry but this sounds - bleeting awful

    That is awesome! I was kind of disappointed that he didn't play 'Amazing Grace', though. :)

    There ARE other songs for the bagpipe, you know. I don't care if I never hear that one again. "The Flowers of the Forest" is lovely.

    I know - you turned me on to it but 'Amazing Grace' is probably a well known standard for the Goat Bagpipe. :p

    That thing hurts the ear.Playing amazing grace on that old bag would be as painful as hearing that old bag numbers singing it.

    I am, of course, appalled that you have returned to CU but I have made a point of leaving you strictly alone since you have done so. I strongly suggest you return me the same courtesy, if the word courtesy is in your vocabulary.

    Yes! It's Friday and there should be no fussing the Lounge. Now back to goat-related instruments and accessories. :)

    Speaking of which, where is Rock? He should be the resident expert on such things.
