Is there any reason 99 times out of 100 times that I hear bagpipes being played, Amazing Grace is the song?
In my facebook feed today, someone posted a video of a “REALLY COOL BAGPIPE PERFORMANCE!!” I said to myself, “Bet it’s Amazing Grace.” And a-yup.
What’s the story behind this. I can’t think of any other instrument being tied to a song so strongly as this (perhaps the piano and Chopsticks, but that’s actually a waltz written for the piano; Amazing Grace wasn’t written for bagpipes, AFAIK.)
