Tunes from Scandinavia
Sackpipslåt från Norra Råda
Sackpipslåt is a Swedish bagpipe tune from Northern Värmland that has become very popular among fans of traditional Swedish music. A Sackpipslåt is a type of Swedish bagpipe. Tune D-A-C (D is the bass string). This is quite the tricky little tune, requiring many hammers, pulls and slides. I utilize my three middle fingers always thinking ahead a bar or two for positioning.
This tune along with Konvulsionslåten can be heard on The Butterfly by Shelley Phillips.
