Bagpipe Solutions Series Volume 2 Book & CD: Beginner Level

If you are really serious about learning to play the bagpipes, the Bagpipe Solutions series of twelve books is unbeatable. The books are far more in depth than any other instruction manual on the market. This is a thorough guide, so it is not recommended for the casual learner. John Cairns suggests that if you practice the 60 minutes each day 4 or 5 days per week, you should work through this volume in 3 months. A detailed checklist at the back of the book helps you track your progress. A companion CD is included, so you can hear samples.
