Bagpipes

In my spare time I play the bagpipes with the The Hague Highland Pipe Band .



Playing the pipes...

Besides the Highland Pipes I also play a set of bellows blown Upper-D Shepherd Smallpipes.

To typeset the scores for our band I have written a small perl program to convert files in the BGP notation (as used by 'Piob Mhor ', it seems this link is now defunct) into bagpipe TeX format.
It is called bgp2tex. It is free, and you can download it from here .
For more information, read the README.
Bagpipe TeX requires a working installation of the TeX typesetting system, and the MusicTeX macro package.
