i've played the small pipes on & off-and might start playing again for our local group.  i've found some period tunes that work, but am hoping to find a source of tunes collected for the bagpipe range.  i will probably need to get another bagpipe on which i can get a more chromatic range so i can play alot more of the music.  right now i've got a set of scottish small pipes with the flatted 7th & i haven't had any luck with getting any extra notes out of the scale.  any ideas where to find a book of period music written specifically for the bagpipes?  also, anyone had much luck finding enough music to fit the highland scale?
