I learned this old bagpipe tune from the playing of West Virginia fiddler Wilson Douglas, who learned it from French Carpenter. Pete Anick backs this up on guitar.

I just started playing this cut of yours since I feel I need to buckle down and learn this tune, and to my surprise, my wife said she liked your fiddling- until now, I'm the only fiddler whose fiddling she's said she likes!
She says your fiddling isn't so frantic and harsh as most of the rest!

I didn't know Elzic' s Farewell was a bagpipe tune .... I can't imagine being able to play it on the Highland pipes unless it was drastically altered , hmm .... though , it is common for bagpipe tunes to have the word " Farewell " in it .... Wilson used to whip out Scottish tunes sometimes .... You play Elzic's very close to the way he did it ...thanks for posting
