Bagpipe Solutions Series Volume 3 Book & CD: Advanced Beginner Level

If you are really serious about learning to play, the Bagpipe Solutions series of twelve books is unbeatable. The books are far more in depth than any other instruction manual on the market; however, they do require more patience than other tutors. For this reason, they are not recommended for the casual learner. John Cairns suggests that if you practice for 60 minutes 4-5 times per week, you should be able to complete the objectives of this volume in four months. A companion CD is included, so you can hear samples.
