very interesting, thanks for sharing.

BTW, what's the song at the second half of the video?

I'm sure this tune would sound great if I could play it on my bagpipes!

We Were Soldiers

Stef:

The song (dunno the name) was included in the Mel Gibson film We Were Soldiers and based on the book We Were Soldiers Once and Young by Joseph L. Galloway

IMDB can give you more on info on the film and there message boards are usually responsive.

OK, I've found it, that's "Sgt Mackenzie" : http://www.clannandrumma.com/sgtmac.html

And yes, that's a bagpipe tune, so it would be playable on my bagpipe, say ...later: it's half past midnight and I'm not sure at all my wife would appreciate the music... :roll:
