Once again we bring pipers and drummers highlight videos to keep the fires burning over the long off-season in the northern hemisphere, and invigorating practice in the hot summer in the antipodes.

We start the series with Leading-Drummer Jake Jørgensen and Pipe-Major Neil Hall of the Grade 1 Lothian & Borders Police Pipe Band, who performed at the pipes|drums-sponsored Pipes+Drums Recital at the 2012 Piping Live! Glasgow International Piping Festival, where we brought four duos of some of the world’s best pipe band leaders.

Under Hall and Jørgensen, the Lothian & Borders Police rose up the competitive ranks in 2012, attracting new players and reinvigorating one of the world’s most historic bands.

We hope that you enjoy and are energized in your off-season (or on-season, for that matter) by these virtuoso performances!

TIP OF THE DAY
Write drum scores at about the same tempo that the tune will be played in competition. If a score is written when a piper is playing slowly, then the score may sound too busy and and will be hard to play at competition tempo.
