The Badpiper Shows Us the Way

This is the Badpiper.  He’s an Australian musician I saw on Facebook last week(  He’s taken a traditional musical instrument (the bagpipes) and used it to create a completely unexpected musical form. I’m hooked.  Check out the video of him playing the AC/DC song “Thunderstruck”.  You can find more on YouTube.

I bring the Badpiper to your attention this week because I think he’s done what we as writers are always trying to do–think outside the borders of our own little world and dip our toes into something unknown and untried.

Who would have thought bagpipes could rock like that?
