Cool, my neighbour's out practising his trumpet

Found 29th Apr 2009
One of my favourite things about the summer is that around the opening weeks of it, Bob from next door stands out in his garden and practises his bagpipes. I know bagpipes don't have a great rep, but I think that's mostly because they never record very well. Live, carefree and solo, my neighbour makes his sound brilliant. Anyway, he seems to have moved on to a trumpet this year, which I've never heard him play before. His technique needs some serious work, but he's getting htere, and I just wanted to share this with you all because there's no-one else to talk to, and I really love being woken up by Bob performing music in his garden.

I love the sound of bagpipes. My parents knew I was musical when I used to scream at "Amazing Grace" as a baby! lol
