I couldn't agree more. Nothing like hearing a new piper that just learned Amazing Grace talk about reed manipulation! I learned so much in my first 3 years, just by listening. The only time I spoke was to ask a question.

A fool always speaks his mind, a wise man always minds what he speaks.

Glad we have so many "experts" in these forums to keep everyone in line.

I appreciate the advice I've gotten from lots of other pipers and know to read everything with an open mind. But these newbies are just excited and eager to spout out what they hear. And chances are they're regurgitating info that they've heard from experienced instructors and pipers.

Just take it lightly and don't be such a condescending ass, Hal, MitchMan,etc. We're all beginners once. Granted, we're all probably better off doing a lot more listening than talking.

Yes, we were all beginners once, and I had the common sense to just listen. There is absolutely nothing valuable that a beginner piper can offer in the way of information, except maybe the starting times and dates of the local games, I'm sorry. It's like having a college intern offer advice to a 5 year employee on how to run a company...it's good for a laugh.

Yea, agreed for the most part. They can usually point out the beer tent as well. Just sticking up for the little guy, I guess.

But seriously, this is just an opinion board. No one is writing a book, just spouting their thoughts. And no one should take anything here as the absolute truth. When I read the various strings, for example regarding popular pipes, I look for majority and common opinions. If everyone has good words for Naill and a few don't, then I tend to believe most people think highly of Naill. But I still like to hear why people don't like Naill, what their negative experience was.

Hell, I'm no expert and am still learning everyday from great pipers whenever I can, as are probably all of us. So I listen a lot more than I advise and maybe someday it will be the other way around.
