thanks Razor i needed a giggle:D:
No giggle from me. :(

Have you ever tried to play the pipes?
Perhaps after half an hour of trying to play them you might have a new found respect?

You'll notice those soldiers didn't use any music, they remembered those incredibly intricate sections.

Remember those men are soldiers first and musicians 2nd, my hat goes off to them.

IMO they (could quite literally) beat the snot out of the commercial music scene.
