Welcome to behind the tunes; a collection of music for the Highland Bagpipes and the stories behind them.  This is a work in progress and a labor of love.  The music and stories are meant to be shared.  Each page contains information about the tune, lyrics (for those tunes that have them), the music, a printable copy, and a downloadable version in Bagpipe Music Writer.
