Do you hate bagpipes?
Posted 3/13/15
Yes because i left a half a block from Kell's Irish pub, every year they feel the need to do a stupid outdoor event in an area that shouldn't be allowed to but because they're a damned Irish pub they're allowed to make obnoxious noise through the night...

I've never really gave it much consideration, until this point. Yes, I do!

Sweet potatoes, douchebags, idiots, boredom, my stepmother, avocados, and being misunderstood are things I absolutely hate. Thank you for reminding me that I hate bagpipes as well.

May the gods have mercy on your soul if you so much as give me a single avocado or sweet potato on purpose....

As with any musical instrument, they can be played well or badly depending on the skill of the musician. There is some great traditional Scottish music out there that uses bagpipes. I've not heard any Irish bagpipe music before though.

No. I enjoy hearing bagpipes played well.

I think they can be nice sometimes, maybe not all the time.

A few of my friends play the bagpipes for school and I think the "insturment" sounds like a dying cat.

It really depends on how they are used, I find most soundtracks and music scores that use them sound very good, and depending on what it is used for can add atmosphere and tone. However, when I here them used in passing... yeah not so much. I am slightly torn on this.

My friend was trying to learn to play the bagpipes and would practice all the time around me. The sound was so horrible I've grown to dislike them.

It was probably Uilleann pipes you heard from the Irish pub. They sound similar to bagpipes, but bagpipes are Scottish.
